Explore “pre-digital” camera technologies and experimental darkroom practices in this special primer led by photographer and educator Lester Lefkowitz (International Center of Photography). This seminar throws into focus the cameras, lenses, film, and printing materials that Japanese and American photographers of the 1960s and 1970s relied on – and contended with –  to create some of the edgiest photographs ever shot. You’ll learn how their medium effected their message and how their work compares with today’s magic.
