ADVENTURES IN CHEMISTRY: DARKROOM SAFETY
19 April 2015â11:00am-1:00pm
Cineworks Annex, 235 Alexander Street
How many of us have ever handled darkroom chemicals without gloves? Or developed a print without tongs? We've all read the warnings on photographic chemicals, but how many of us have always heeded them? To the novice, many of the precautions sound like hyperbole designed to protect the manufacturer rather than inform the photographer. But the warnings are real. Chemicals commonly encountered in the darkroom range from the harmless to violent poisons. It is important for the darkroom enthusiast to understand the hazards faced in the pursuit of art. This class is designed to introduce students to the roles of chemicals in our photographic work, their risks, their benefits the procedures required to use them safely.
