Photography without Cameras

I can almost still smell these flowers when I look at this photo! Such a magical two evenings at the Papergirl Photography without Cameras Lumen Printing Workshops.  

Dear Blob,

Not sure how I did it but I managed to delete the post I just wrote. Sad face. Blog post take two.

Papergirl is getting very very exciting with less than two weeks till the submission deadline and the big events like the exhibition, cyclist party and ride out are next month! 

One of my very favourite parts of my role for Papergirl is working on the workshops. Last year it was What Moves You? Block Printing Workshops with artist Eryne Donahue and this year it's been the Photography without Cameras, Lumen Printing Workshops with artist Phyllis Swartz

The experience of Lumen Printing and all the wonderful people who were brought together through these workshops has been just magical. Big thanks to the amazing Phyllis Swartz, The Roundhouse, Our Sponsors, Papergirl team members and of course the amazing partcipants! 

There is only one workshop left coming up on this Sunday and the participants will be printing with fruit outdoors this time. Check it out here

Love, Tara

The first part of the workshops were held in the Engine Room in the Roundhouse. Having lots and lots of light is very important in Lumen Printing and it was great to use that space for art making.

Everyone created three prints and donated one to Papergirl.

This was the demo artwork. It looks lovely here but in the final result the petals created beautiful ghosty layers.
