    Using the sunlight and simple materials, this workshop aims to teach participants how to make stunning images using pinhole camera techniques.

    Conducted by Shannon Castleman, this workshop will start off with participants experiencing the earliest photographic invention, the camera obscura. Then using hand-made pinhole cameras and lens-less wooden box cameras, participants will then have a chance to create their own unique images. These images will be used as negatives in printing process known as cyanotype that makes vibrant blue prints with just sunlight and water. No prior experience with photography is needed for this workshop.

    Shannon Castleman graduated with a BFA in Photography from the Tisch School of the Arts, New York University, in 1993. She spent eight years working as a freelance photographer, before returning to study at the San Francisco Art Institute, receiving her MFA in 2004. Her experience across a broad array of professional assignments, ranging from photojournalism to fashion, later informed her personal work in its fusion of documentary style and fictional staging.

    The artist's images have been included in a number of exhibitions, both in her native United States and internationally. In 2003 she enjoyed a residency at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana, Cuba, under the direction of Tony Labat. Soon after, Castleman undertook a position as an Assistant Professor of Photography, at Dar Al-Hekma College, in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. She continues to be involved in arts education here in Singapore at the NTU School of Art, Design and Media (ADM) as Assistant Professor of Photography.
