“By Myself: An exploration of large format film photography and letterpress printmaking”
Carter G. Woodson 7th grade boys worked with Sawtooth photography teacher Joseph Brunjes to create large format photography “selfies”. They learned to operate a large format camera with bellows and manual settings. Next they learned how to develop their film in the darkroom.Students also worked with Sawtooth interns Mackenzie Filson and April Honbarger, using letterpress and experimental collage. They learned about duality, how a single idea can be represented in two different ways. The boys created portraits about themselves using words printed on the letterpress and images cut from magazines.
The boys work will be on exhibit at Sawtooth from Friday, Jan. 17th through Friday, Feb. 14th.
