Lumetype Photo Booth

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Lumetype, a photographic method of printing objects and plates innovated by Caro d’Offay, is offered to the community in the form of photo-booth events. A table is set up in the front yard, where materials are available for the public to come create a glowing object to print. Once complete,  these glowing “plates” can be inserted into the drop box in basement window, where a darkroom works inside to print it photographically. A short while later, the print comes out of the other window to be washed in a bucket outside. Once washed, participants can hang their prints up to dry and take them home.
