Happy Spring – Faux Emulsion Lifts workshop at Soho Photo

Welcome back. After all that snow removal and freezing temperatures, why not work up a sweat by doing some heavy lifting? Well, not too heavy! Join us on March 29th at Soho Photo Gallery from 9:30 – 1:30 for a Faux Emulsion Lift workshop. Many of us had the pleasure of working with Polaroid transfers and emulsion lifts back in the ‘good old days’ when we thought Polaroid would be around forever. Alas, it disappeared and although some people have come pretty close to recreating it, […]

A new  generation of photographers seems to be  nostalgic for the  imagery of past generations.
