Together with CYAN Studio & Darkroom from Oslo and with support from Nordic Culture Fund, the association launches a pilot residency program. The Nordic Analog Network is a pilot project that hopefully will be able to grow into a regular program of artist exchanges between darkrooms in different Nordic countries. For the first ever exchange two artists have been selected for a three week long residency during April, 2022: Silvia De Giorgi from Oslo and Patrick Kuoppamäki from Helsinki. Warm congratulations to both!
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 organizes courses of all levels in black and white printing and special techniques, such as collodion wet plate process and daguerreotype.
The association produces various events and exhibitions, such as the Helsinki Darkroom Festival, which was organized for the first time in the spring of 2022 at the The Finnish Museum of Photography. In 2022–2024 the association is one of main organizers of the residency program Nordic Analog Network.
