About the Course

Starting with instructor-supplied paper, gelatin, sensitizer, lithographic ink, medium/large format negatives, and simple equipment, students will learn to make striking and unique photographic images using the ‘oil’ printing process, which is based on the disaffinity of oil and water. Digital negatives can be made if needed.


Your Instructor

Mac Cosgrove-Davies

RAB Self Portrait for Photoworks - Richa

Mac teaches Historic Photo Processes at Photoworks.

These processes include:
gum bichromate, cyanotype, VanDyke, palladium, and carbon printing.

In addition to building the occasional camera, printing frame or other useful photographic gadget, he also creates books and presentation portfolios for his prints.

He is currently working on hand painted cyanotypes.

Mac is inspired by the work of Gertrude Kasebier and Edward Steichen

"I focus on my student’s interests. My classes are less about showing how I make prints and more about helping students make the prints they want to make."
