The Magic of Photography without a Camera – An Artist Talk by Phyllis Schwartz

July 25, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In this artist talk, the Lumen Print image making process (photograms made without a camera) will be explained and illustrated with examples. Phyllis Schwartz will explain the history of early photographic experiments that led her to her own artist practice. She will show how photograms of plant materials leave marks and traces on photosensitive surfaces and how she crafts them in a digital medium.

Phyllis is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in photography, ceramics and publishing based in Victoria, Canada. Her work at Emily Carr University consolidated these interests with a concentration in photography. She was the recipient of the Canon Photography Award. As a visual artist, she seeks detail, texture, and poetic elements. She uses photography to investigate and record what eludes the eye. Her photography has been exhibited and published across Canada and internationally; her works are in public, corporate and private collections.
