Autumn Color Film-Photography Workshop

For its second edition, the After Mountain workshop, in collaboration with @magnoliafilmlab, invites you to a colour film photography course in the Aqtushetii Residency from 1st to 8th October 2022.

To capture the unique autumn colouring and the process of Tushetian migration to the lowlands, your facilitator Gela Shekeladze will guide you through the first week of October in the high mountains of Georgia.

The workshop entails theoretical lessons and color film processing which will be done in the darkroom of the residency. 

The course is open to professional and amateur photographers.

To professional photographers who already know their way around all of the mentioned above, we offer the wonder and vastness that is Tusheti – its people, villagers, forests, valleys, rivers and the mountains. Experienced photographers will also be provided with the space to not only work in the darkroom, but also chanced to share their work and experience with amateurs of the workshop, as well as with the encouragement to collaborate. We hope to have a kind of a presentation/installation at the end of the workshop to showcase prints or any work made during these days. We also think to give people tasks or themes to work around. We as well plan to walk about, hike, explore, shoot as many photos as possible, watch movies, dine together, make friends and enjoy ourselves, so join!! Magnolia Film Lab crew greets you to Aqtushetii which you’ll later find is not only about photography, but so much more..
