Darkroom Ecology

Scott Hunter

Scott Hunter is an environmental artist and photographer using experimental photography to explore the rich biodiversity of post-industrial sites.

His Darkroom Ecology project explores nature-based solutions to harmful chemicals used in analogue photography.

In this session , Scott will provide an artist talk introducing his recent project at Bandeath Munitions Depot, guidance on how to forage responsibly, and a demonstration on developing black and white film sustainably using organic matter such as moss. In addition, he proposes replacing silver-containing fixers with salt water, offering a non-toxic alternative to the disposal of heavy metals in water systems.

This workshop will provide a basic understanding of eco-processing to allow you to experiment further and develop your recipes.

This workshop is suitable for adults with a keen interest in analogue photography. Maximum participants: 18
