Field Trip! Large Format visits Green Rhino/Brooklyn Printworks [Update]

Alumnus Anthony Accardi recently hosted Tom Drysdale’s Large Format Class at Green Rhino/Brooklyn Printworks, 221 McKibben Street, in Bushwick. Anthony showed samples of the amazing range of non-silver printing techniques he has made available to artists; including large-scale platinum, cyanotype, gum-bichromate and even albumin print options. Using his digital-c printing system to make inter-negatives, Accardi has systematically refined optimal curves for best results with any of these expressive approaches. Speaking with students, he discussed the subtle relationship between aesthetic choices and appropriate materials. With thirty years of experience printing a variety of formats for artists like Matthew Barney, he extolls the virtues of a hybrid approach to image-making, utilizing digital tools as well as traditional, even “obsolete” methodologies. We had a great time and we’d urge anyone with thoughts of special printing methods to contact him.

[Update]: Tom and students have sent over some extra photos from their day in Brooklyn. Click the thumbnails to enlarge.

Advanced Lighting goes on Location

Mark Jenkinson reporting on his Advanced Lighting’s recent field trip.

A little too chilly, (when is going to finally warm up?) but we couldn’t hold out any longer.  All of us had cabin fever from spending too much of the semester in Room 844, so we loaded up my car with a ton of lighting gear and headed off to the East Village where our model Zack, from Red Model Management came to meet us.

Arranging locations for field trips is always tricky for me, I have to consider a lot of visual factors (like does it look cool), as well as practical considerations; are there bathrooms nearby, shelter in case it rains, and security for the students and gear.  Luckily one of our students, Brian McGuffog, a had a nearby apartment with a roof deck, really we couldn’t have asked for a better location to play with “day for night” , and mixed strobe motion effects.
