Chine-Collé, Printmaking and
Fine Art Photography with Anne Berry
Join us for another session of Into the Studio as we explore one of the ways photographers can use traditional printmaking techniques to produce editioned fine art photographic prints. Chine-collé is an extraordinary printmaking process that uses delicate Japanese paper and expert craftsmanship to produce handcrafted, museum quality, archival prints. In this exclusive workshop, the Atlanta Photography Group (APG) features printmaker and acclaimed fine art photographer, Anne Berry as she takes us through the process that she uses to make chine-collé prints in her studio.
Chine-collé is a traditional printmaking process in which a tissue thin sheet of paper is printed on (using a printing press) and simultaneously mounted to a thicker backing paper, creating a fusion of textures and impressions. The combination of the thin paper with the heavier backing creates an exquisitely detailed impression and luxuriously smooth texture that is particularly well suited for rendering photographic images.
Learning the chine-collé process takes time, practice and access to specialized equipment. Because of this many photographers never get a chance to experience how these exquisite prints are produced. This installment of Into the Studio provides a rare opportunity for photographers to experience and appreciate the intricate process behind these exquisite prints. Through hands-on demonstration and discussions Anne will guide participants through the techniques and creative possibilities of this time-honored printing process.
Whether you are a seasoned artist or a creative enthusiast, this workshop offers a unique opportunity to expand your artistic horizons and discover how some photographers are turning to historic techniques to produce unique imagery in today’s digital world. By exploring the interplay of delicate papers, printing presses, and the photographic medium, you will get a glimpse into the world of an artist that has bridged the past and present through her artistry.
No prior experience in printmaking or photography is necessary—only a curious mind and a genuine interest in exploring new artistic territories.
