This very nice photography event takes place every 2 years in the pretty region of Condroz.
I particularly admired the work of the british photographer and chemical explorer Matthew Houston’s who displays a series of beautiful, sexy young females in the nude as well as photograms, abstract photos and darkroom experimentations.

Labod’arte Ferrara

July 26th, 2015

A 10 day residency/ workshop working with textiles in Ferrare for sessione Labod’arte, hosted at the beautiful Wunderkammer site with a view on the river Po. Nadia, Véronique and Patricia are the main participants with a few interventions by the kids. We worked with a minimum of equipment, sticking to the 3 colours: blue, black and with the following techniques: shibory, bleaching, silkscreening and cyanotype.
The aim was to explore and mix the techniques on a 50x70cm surface using objects from the surrounding to create an image.
