Finnish Darkroom Association resumes its courses in autumn 2021 COVID situation allowing. We will organise one Film Photography and Film Developing course, one Basics of Gelatin Silver Printing course and one course of special or advanced printing techniques if there are enough interested participants.
The Finnish Darkroom Association is a non-profit association founded in 2016 with the purpose of ensuring the preservation of analog photography.
Mörk is a fully equipped, professional black and white darkroom built and maintained by the association located in The Finnish Artists' Studio Foundation's Vallila Studio Centre in Helsinki.
The association actively organises courses of all levels in black and white printing and special techniques, such as collodion wet plate process and daguerreotype. It also produces various events and exhibitions, such as the Helsinki Darkroom Festival, which will be organised for the first time in the beginning of 2022 at the Museum of Finnish Photography.
