Le Salon Noir Master Class: Alternative Photography Workshop with Dianne Bos & Sarah Fuller

Le Salon Noir


WHERE: LĂ©ran, Occitanie, France
INSTRUCTORS: Dianne Bos & Sarah Fuller

Le Salon Noir: Master Class* is designed for intermediate practitioners with an understanding of traditional darkroom processes and techniques who are excited to develop their practice among peers in the comfort of a cozy B&B in Languedoc, France. Using low-fi camera methodologies, analogue silver-based photographic processes, and alternative photographic emulsions including Cyanotype and Anthotypes, participants in the Master Class will draw inspiration from the surrounding region for their artistic creations.

Based out of Léran, France in the foothills of the Pyrénées, participants will have the opportunity to explore the amazing history and culture of the Occitanie region. Planned field trips include a visit to Niaux and its 15,000 year old cave drawings, as well as Montségur and other Cathar ruins that dot the region.

The time will be divided between instructor-led field trips, technical instruction, and independent studio time. Dianne and Sarah will provide technical assistance and artistic guidance in the form of darkroom orientation, mini-workshops and studio visits. Though the instructors are partial to traditional photo practices they will be happy to help you improve your digital photography chops as well.

Workshop size has been limited to provide individual attention and is geared to your experience level with photography. Participants will all reside at the B&B L’impass du Temple a beautiful 18th century classical French home in LĂ©ran.
