The secret of the dark chamber


We will take children through the history of photography from the very beginnings to cameras in mobile phones. We will show them how photographs are made in professional studios. We will build our own simple camera, too, take a photo and send it to your email. We will uncover the secret of the dark chamber and create a photogram that each child will be able to take home…

Photogram – in red lighting objects with various transparency are laid on photographic paper. After exposure, development and fixing, everyone will be able take take their image with them.

Instructions for participants: old clothing to change into, bring your favorite toy (up to 20 cm big)
