The classical photography studio focuses on technological procedures and processes in the generation of photography. The content arises from the assumption that the student must master particular technical tasks which open a path to the realization of one's artistic intentions. Procedures are analysed with students which lead to priorly established goals. Part of instruction is a comparison of various technology and their limitations which often may become the single bearer of implementation of the selected intent.

Forma studia

Exercise analysis, projection work in relation to the topic, independent creative work.

The Ephemeral in Photography

„All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.“

(Susan Sontag: On Photography)

Nature, material things as well as human life, basically everything that surrounds us, are the subject to development, extinction and transformation. The only thing that is undoubtedly permanent, is change. Not only the visible world around us but also our mind is subject to transience. It is constantly transformed by storing deposits of new thoughts and experiences, and as a result, our memories are constantly changing.

No other medium reflects the ubiquitous change as clearly as photography. It reveals how everything around us falls victim to time and outside conditions. It has the ability to capture processes of appearance, disappearance, degradation, and destruction. To imprint a phenomenon or an event on photographic film is to give them importance and immortality without which they would otherwise cease to exist.

The ephemeral in photography, the theme of the studio assignment in winter term 2021/22, intentionally affords a multiplicity of layers and interpretations. You can use the areas listed below as sources of inspiration:

Your work is not limited by choice of genre or technical approach. You have the opportunity to choose or discover a creative approach that suits you best, both in terms of expression and execution. The resulting work must be anchored in the medium of photography and must consist of at least six individual photographic images.

Embark on a journey of exploring the ephemeral and try to immortalize it with your photographic work!

Obsah kurzu

The classical photography studio focuses on technological procedures and processes in the generation of photography. The content arises from the assumption that the student must master particular technical tasks which open a path to the realization of one's artistic intentions. Procedures are analysed with students which lead to priorly established goals. Part of instruction is a comparison of various technology and their limitations which often may become the single bearer of implementation of the selected intent.

The studio is devoted to working with classic analog photography from cinematic film to large-format photography. Students have the opportunity to work with negatives up to 30x40cm and to subsequently produce on color paper in meter dimensions.

Part of the studio is a workshop focused on historical photography techniques such as flexography, cyanotype, bromoil print or working with gelatine and its transfer to non-standard materials. A unique original, where the bearer of the positive image is the negative, is photography.

The studio is dedicated to technological innovations, research and evaluation of the potential of digital photography and other technologies which take part in the recording of an optical image. Part of the studio are new light sources, managing aerial photography using drones, or acquiring extremely high-quality shots using various robotic devices.

Investigation of the potential for realizing one's creative intentions in relation to the selected technology is, among others, in studio discussions.
