How is it different from Classical photograph®?
Classical photograph® is a “creative photographic art” in which a photographer processes his or her own photographs and negatives using modern digital technology, and creates images with one of Classical photograph ® techniques. It is a new art form with originality.
Artistic Photogram® is an artistic work of art created using negatives of famous paintings (Van Gogh, Vermeer, Monet, etc.) whose copyright protection period has expired, and using cyanotype or Van Dyke brown print techniques from among Classical photograph® techniques.
It can be called an entry level of Classical photograph® or purely new art form for everyone to enjoy Classical photograph techniques or to experience famous works of past artists.
Workshops with Artistic Photogram® are currently being offered. (Closed in October 2023 for exhibition in Italy)
