Summer Workshop with Paul Taylor

June 25 – 28 and August 7 – 10

Photogravure is perhaps the most beautiful of the photographic processes.  It is also one of the most challenging.  This summer Paul Taylor of Renaissance Press is sharing his expertise and offering two hands-on photogravure workshops.

Paul’s work with early photographic processes spans over thirty years. He is the founder of The Rhode Island School of Design Press and has been teaching photogravure at RISD since 1993. Renaissance Press has published or produced work by artists including Duane Michals, Robert Mapplethorpe, Joel Peter Witkin, Linda Connor, Robert Adams, Aaron Siskind, Roy DeCarava, Tom Baril, and many others.  These prints are collected by museums internationally.

The workshops will take place at Renaissance Press’ atelier in Ashuelot, New Hampshire.  Participants should expect intensive days in a relaxed environment.  Renaissance Press is located on the bank of the Ashuelot and is a 25 minute drive to Keene New Hampshire or Brattleboro Vermont..

Each workshop is limited to 4 participants.
