Focus On: Lightroom Beginner and Intermediate Courses at Belfast Exposed



This exploratory programme will use the Archive of Modern Conflict exhibition as a starting point for a photographically-themed arts programme, which will explore individual approaches to historical photography. The title ‘Slow Photo Sunday’ refers to the relaxed atmosphere of this Sunday programme, and to the movement of other modes of cultural ‘slowness’ where the emphasis is on a slower, often historical process rather than achieving a faster result.

The exhibition is an incredibly rich and layered experience exploring how aspects of conflict and colonialism have been captured and displayed through a range of 19th and early twentieth century photographic practices and approaches. Exploring and choosing elements of the exhibition to work from, participants will enjoy a bespoke gallery tour, sensitise watercolour paper, make their own negatives to create unique, individual cyanotype prints and create a photo-collage as part of their Slow Photo Sunday portfolio.

The sessions include coffee and a croissant – it is Sunday after all!
Maximum 10 participants.
Booking essential.
