Welcome to the workshop on printing the black-and-white photographs and on creating blue dye at the "processing" exhibition. The workshop will be delivered by a photographer, a founder and a member of the "Vezha" photo group Mykhaylo Frantsuzov.

Participants will learn about the basics of a manual photo process, and print the photos from the negative images making the blue dyes along with the author. A blue dye is a technique for toning the black-and-white images, a most typical method for Frantsuzov's works.

The number of participants is limited; you need to register.
