Wet Plate Collodion and Salt Print Workshop with Luther Gerlach

Please join us for an intensive workshop run by fine artist and historical photographic process expert Luther Gerlach, hosted by the International Center for the Arts this September 10th to 25th. The ancient hill-top village of Monte Castello di Vibio is the setting for this immersive program. Students will enjoy private accommodation in a twelfth century stone convent with spectacular views of the Tiber Valley, including three home-cooked Umbrian meals per day. Using historical cameras, we will create wet plate collodion negatives and positives and make salt prints from those. This workshop pairs beautiful scenery and historic sites with Gerlach’s sense of artistry and passion for historical photographic processes.
