Darkroom in the Desert at the Fayoum in Egypt
Travel with contributing writer Liz Doles to the Fayoum in Egypt, an oasis in the Sahara where art and connections are nourished. Join Liz at the Winter Academy, a six-week artist’s retreat & workshop at the Fayoum Art Center in Tunis, established in Egyptian painter Mohamed Abla and now run by his son Ibrahim, a film-maker. See Liz’s view of the land of the Nile and the Pharoahs through the medium of her art—a pinhole camera. Let Liz instruct you in the 19th century realm of photograms and the pinhole camera, fundamental in the history of photography, both part of the earliest image-making processes.
