The aim of this workshop is to go back to analog photography and, by doing this, to savour once again the wonders of this both technical and artistic process. The students will realise a cardboard photographic camera, with lenses and aperture included. They will then take pictures of the guests of Concorto Film Festival (jury members, actors, directors), develop and treat the negatives with chemical products and put up an exhibition of all the photos in the greenhouse of Parco Raggio, the festival main location.
