Almost everyone can take pictures, but it's only in the darkroom that you can see who's really creative! Above all, there is something magical about the process of analog image making. The size of the hand print can be individually selected and the contrasts finely controlled. Afterwards, the photographed reality slowly emerges in the developer bath, an exciting game with light and shadow in the almost dark room.

But how do you actually get the perfect photo in black and white? The young participants in the workshop first use an analog camera to search for suitable motifs, and then develop and dry their own film in the darkroom. The negatives then form the source material for the prints, a selection is made, and the right image detail and suitable photographic paper are chosen. At the end, everyone holds their personally printed photo in their hand!

Amélie Losier studied German literature and culture in Paris and Berlin. She took drawing classes at the École des Beaux Arts in Paris and studied documentary photography with Prof. Arno Fischer at the school "Fotografie am Schiffbauerdamm" in Berlin. Since 2001 she lives and works as a freelance photographer in Berlin. Losier teaches reportage and portrait photography to young people and adults. She has been a member of the FREELENS association for photojournalism since 2011. She has received various grants and fellowships for her work, and has been included in solo and group exhibitions.
