NEW ORLEANS, LA — On Saturday, August 14, Photographer Eddie Lanieri will host the Polaroid Emulsion Artist Workshop at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in downtown New Orleans.
The workshop, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., will include a guided tour of "Revelations II: Recent Photography Acquisitions," where Lanieri is one of its exhibiting artists.
Lanieri is a New Orleans-based photographer who specialized in polaroid photography. A native of New York City, she earned her Master of Fine Arts from Florida State University before moving to Italy and settling in New Orleans six years ago.
In this workshop, participants will learn to transform digital images into physical works of art using a process named Polaroid emulsion lift. This process removes the photographic emulsion from an instant film by introducing it in warm water before moving it to another material, such as glass or wood.
This workshop will teach participants how to do emulsion transfer techniques using Polaroid i-Type Film. First, class participants will take turns with a Polaroid One Step+ camera to turn digital photos from their phone into a Polaroid before transferring them onto watercolor paper.
Participants must provide their digital images during this workshop, and this workshop does not require any prior photography or image transfer technique knowledge. The class will also offer up to three polaroids per participant.
Since this event will be held inside the Ogden Museum, everyone over two years old must wear a mask during this event. The mask worn should cover both mouth and nose during all circumstances.
To participate in this event, members of the Museum will need to pay $40.00, and non-members will need to pay $ 45.00.
