a tour of B&Wphotography
It gives us immense pleasure to inform you that this month we are inviting ace photographer Santanu Chakraborty at DPC in the ongoing series of calling senior photographers at DPC for a tea talk session exclusively for our members on Black n White Photography.

A Tour of Black and White Photography: Past, Present and Future
This talk will discuss the origins of photography taking us through the various processes that ushered in photography.
Instead of fading away into history many of these methods, each with their unique look, have returned under the moniker of “Alternative” Photography. Photography moved on from these methods into the more convenient silver gelatin based technique that we today know as Film. Santanu will be discussing various techniques, their processes and subtleties along with the works of master practitioners from both the past and the present. All along contrasting the old methods of shooting and printmaking with the modern digital methods of today to give you a comprehensive overview that will help you choose the processes that most enhance your artistic vision.

Date: 7th August, Sunday
Timings: 4.00 pm to 6.00 pm
Venue: Delhi Photography Club Lounge,
Shahpur Jat Village
