Offered for the first time in Impossible history, we are pleased to announce that John Reuter and Nafis Azad of the 20×24 studio will be conducting an Impossible 20×24 workshop. The 20×24 camera is a large format legend, and has been used to capture iconic photos by photographic greats, including Chuck Close, Andy Warhol, and Mary Ellen Mark. This is the first time we have offered this workshop. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to operate and shoot with this amazing camera.
John Reuter has worked with instant materials since the 1970s, beginning with his graduate work at the University of Iowa. He began working as a photographer for Polaroid in 1978 and has worked with all formats from 4×5, 8×10 and 20×24. He was a pioneer in the Image Transfer process, working in 8×10 from 1980 until 1983 and 20×24 from 1983 to 1997. In his role as Director of the 20×24 Studio he has guided numerous artists as they worked with the 20×24 camera in Boston, New York and studios around the world. Nafis Azad became Director of Photography for the New York 20×24 studio in October and recently received his MFA in photography at the University of Massachusetts. He has built several of his own large format cameras.
The workshop will begin with a lecture at the Impossible Project Space on November 30th from 6-8pm. John and Nafis will discuss the history and use of the 20×24 camera, and give students practical technical information so they can plan their shoots for the following weekend. The workshop will conclude with a full studio day at the 20×24 studio, with hands on guidance in a small group setting. The workshop costs $400 and film is not included. Single sheets of Polacolor P3 film will be available to purchase for $50 each.
