Disappearing Acts: Diazotype Process workshop

On Friday, October 24, from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Eric Carroll will lead a DIAZOTYPE WORKSHOP in Glen Helen Nature Preserve. To attend the workshop, all day (9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m), or part of the day either morning (9:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m.) or afternoon (2:00 -5:00 p.m.), please RSVP your request to Jennifer Rooks Wenker, Creative Director of the Herndon Gallery at and we will hold a place for you! The workshop will begin in the Glen Helen Building off of Corry Street and then explore the shadows beneath the forest canopy. See you there!

Utilizing the diazotype process, participants will learn how to make camera-less photographs (photograms) outside of the traditional darkroom context. Working in the Glen Helen Preserve, participants will learn how to prepare paper holders, expose the diazotype paper, and process it on-site. There will be a morning and afternoon session–each session is expected to last 3 hours. We will be working outdoors, so dress accordingly! All materials provided.

*Note that the diazotype process is fragile and processed diazotypes are still very sensitive to sunlight and water.

All events are free and open to the public.

Eric William Carroll is an artist exploring photography in all its forms. By reenacting photography’s cultural and technological history, he aims to reveal the medium’s elementary characteristics and metaphorical potential, as well as our expectations and desires for the art form. “I’m interested in blurring the line between nature and technology. The obsolution of older technologies is what moves the man-made closer to the realm of nature. That’s what attracts me. Essentially, all of this work is about time. I’m interested in how we feel when things don’t last as long as we want them. It’s a strange mixture of nostalgia, sadness and beauty.”
Born and raised in the Midwest, Carroll has bounced between New York and San Francisco and currently teaches at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota. His work has been exhibited widely, including the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Camera Club of New York, the Museum of Contemporary Photography, and SF Camerawork. Carroll has participated in residencies with the MacDowell Colony, Rayko Photo Center and the Blacklock Nature Sanctuary, and was the winner of the 2012 Baum Award for Emerging Photographers. He is represented by Highlight Gallery in San Francisco.

Foreign Language Film Series: "Les Choristes" (2004)

Les Choristes is a 2004 French drama film directed by Christophe Barratier. Co-written by Barratier and Philippe Lopes-Curval (fr), it is an adaptation of the 1945 film A Cage of Nightingales (La Cage aux rossignols), which in turn was adapted by Noël-Noël and René Wheeler from a story by Wheeler and Georges Chaperot.

The plot involves the widely successful orchestra conductor Pierre Morhange (Jacques Perrin), who returns to France when his mother dies. He reminisces about his childhood inspirations when he and his former classmate Pépinot (Didier Flamand) read the diary of their old music teacher Clément Mathieu (Gérard Jugnot). In 1949, a young Pierre (Jean-Baptiste Maunier) is the badly behaved son of single mother Violette (Marie Bunel). He attends the boarding institution for “difficult” boys, Fond de L'Étang (“Bottom of the Pond”), presided over by strict headmaster Mr Rachin (François Berléand). New teacher Mathieu brightens up the school and assembles a choir, leading to the discovery of Pierre's musical and physical talents and a transformation in the children.

Foreign Language Film Series: "Nana" (2008)

Ai Yazawa's popular manga concerning two young women who couldn't be more different despite sharing the same name comes to the screen in this musical drama starring J-Pop icon Mika Nakashima and actress Aoi Miyazaki. Nana "Hachi" Komatsu (Miyazaki) has traveled with her boyfriend to Tokyo in hopes of starting a new life. Elsewhere in this neon-lit metropolis, ambitious punk rock beauty Nana Osaki (Nakashima) arrives determined to become the next big thing in the nocturnal world of rock & roll. On the surface it would seem that these two girls would have little in common, but as they share their dreams and set out in search of true happiness, the girls who couldn't be more different forge a friendship that will last a lifetime. Kentaro Otani directs a film featuring music by J-Rock megastar Hyde. Jason Buchanan, Rovi
