This workshop is inspired by the exhibition White Shadows: Anneliese Hager and the Camera-less Photograph, which explores the innovative camera-less photography of German artist Anneliese Hager (1904–1997). The exhibition is on view at the Harvard Art Museums through July 31, 2022.

We will first gather in the galleries for an introduction to the exhibition by Bridget Hinz, curatorial assistant for special exhibitions and publications, who will examine a selection of Hager’s works. Then we’ll visit the Materials Lab, where conservator Penley Knipe will guide participants in the preparation of photosensitive cyanotype paper. (We may also go outdoors, weather permitting.) Participants will be able to create their own photograms, experimenting with both translucent and opaque materials.

No prior experience is necessary. Participants are invited to bring their own small objects such as leaves, flowers, buttons, swatches of translucent fabric like gauze, and other items with interesting and distinctive shapes. This workshop will take place in the Materials Lab, Lower Level.

$15 materials fee. Registration is required and space is limited. Materials fee must be paid to confirm registration. Please email [email protected] or call 617-495-1440 to register. Minimum age of 14; no previous experience is required.

Please see the museum visit page to learn about our general policies for visiting the museum.
