The LightBox Symposium for Alternative Process Photography is a celebration of the myriad of methods photographers have revived from the history of photography. In September LightBox will dedicate a weekend to celebrate these photographic arts with some of the most passionate representatives and practicing artists working with the alternative photographic processes.
LightBox will present an incredible group of Alternative Process Photographers in the LightBox Symposium for Alternative Process Photography on September 13, 14 and 15th. We welcome our keynote Speaker Christina Z. Anderson as well as Alt Process photographers Jim Fitzgerald, Karen Hymer, Denise Ross, and Michael Puff. Each will be speaking and performing detailed demonstrations of their processes. See the Webpage for all the details. We invite you to join us and be part of a very special weekend!
The participants in the audience will be what truly makes this weekend special, as the social opportunity of meeting and sharing with others is one of the lasting rewards that we hope will happen. We know the weekend will be special and hope you will make the effort to attend. We are hosting this symposium at Alderbrook Station, a historical 115 year old net shed on the banks of the Columbia River in the heart of Astoria, making for a perfect natural setting for an enjoyable and unique weekend together.
We invite you to be part of the event.
