Last year I thought the processes I am working on are new and this year, I have discovered entire new and exciting possibilities of Experimental and Alternative photography genres. So exciting. Btw, I haven’t uploaded the photographs of the processes I am going to give workshops on my website yet coz I am busy working lol. Will scan them and update soon.

We’re so excited to be working with one of our newest Artists-in-Residence, Htet T. San. Htet is a Myanmar-born artist based in New York City.

After sitting down with Htet, she chatted about her journey into her current art practice. Her first darkroom experience was 2008, and she fell in love with the surprise of processing her own film. Starting out as a portrait photographer about 10 years ago, she moved into photo essay and documentary work. Recently, she has been gaining momentum in experimental pieces.

When asked about her art style, she describes it as, “a show of liberation and expression. I want to show reflection, contemplation, and my experience with life’s encounters - but also connect with the viewer so they are able feel their own emotions in my work.”

She says her current project as an AIR has been working with the mordançage technique which is an alternative photographic process that alters silver gelatin prints to give them a degraded effect.

We are so excited to have Htet here with us at FCAC. Our Artists-in-Residence often teach their skills in classes to the Rochester, NY community here at the Center, so be sure to keep an eye out on our class listings to learn more from her soon! More about Htet at: htettsan.com

I am in the process of trying to translate some of the poems I have written over the past decade to visual imagery. This is the first page of my poetry book I have written when I was 17 years old. It made me smile when I am figuring out right now whether I can still be that kind of person. And I also found the thoughts I had back then and I have right now have very huge difference. Time and experience have changed me. But I treasure this book as a record of my metamorphosis and I appreciate it as a path to who I have become. I love this book of mine. #mypoetrybook #lookingback #memories #metamorphosis #newbeginnings

Experimental Darkroom: Chemigrams & Photograms

Hi All, I just got some emails this morning asking about whether Mordancage and chemigram workshops are Online workshops. They are not online workshops. They will be held in physical space Photography Darkroom and classroom at Flower City Arts Center. So, participants have to attend the classes in person in Rochester, NY and bring essential materials needed for the class.

Here are the links to register. The workshops have limited space due to COVID 19. So, reserve early. Thank you.

A chemigram is an experimental art form where a photographic image is made by painting on a light-sensitive paper (such as photographic paper). The result resembles a watercolor painting. In this workshop, chemigrams will be made using resists in conjunction with photographic chemicals to create uni...

Excited about the process I am working with some of my photographs? During my residency period at Flower City Arts Center, I will be teaching a very cool workshop about a photography process I love working named Mordançage. It's the kind of technique you can only make one unique image at a time because even if you print it from same negative, one print from another will have great variation depends on many factors.

If you are interested and have friends who are interested to learn about this technique around Rochester area, share this news and register from the website at https://flowercityarts.org/classes/mordancage-fall-2020/

Illuminated tree and mountains from Heaven ...think I should name it after a very cool ethereal landscape came out from my painting with emulsion patiently for like hours. 😄🤓😌 Btw, today is world photography day. What shall I do to celebrate? Cook quick dinner to eat and more research on photography maybe lol

08/19/2020

Why do I feel like photography darkroom is a form of meditation. It helps me relax, focus, concentrate and forget about distractions. That I could practice all my life and might be better than going to monastery to meditate? I might get Enlightenment sooner this way Lol

Feeling like float in Cosmo or flow with Zen while painting with photo emulsion ... my background music helps keeping the mood lol #currentobsession

One of the interesting ways to make prints using chlorophyll and plant materials. My first sheets try using this technique. Anthotypes and Chlorophyll printing is easy. Just need to have patience in making them. These days, I am trying to explore different techniques in making prints and all of them are quite fascinating. #anthotype #alternativephotography #anothertechnique

I really have Huge Respect to Hard Working people with High Morals from 99%. Maybe I am so Sick and Tired of Rich Stinky Bitchy Attitudes from Filthy Disgusting Crony Families of my native country. To me, my Respect Does Not Depend on How much money someone have or How Popular they are. It’s kindda funny to see how those kinds of SHALLOW STUPID minds would think of nothing except to discriminate other people as much as they can. Pity Indeed. #feelingsoDisgusted

My current Heaven and how I see things these days : Everything is photography-able and even when I see Christmas lights, I see them like photography lights lol. So grateful these days that I am able to experiment darkroom techniques I was waiting to actually work on it . Thank you FCAC, Juliana, Gail and I am loving my stay at Rochester 🤓🥰😊 #moodthesedays #photographydarkroom #photographerHeaven

My volcano being developed . Sometimes, this process takes the entire evening just for one print but each print looks entirely different and unique from the same negative. #lovingthiseffect 🤓

Now I start to make anthotypes and it’s kindda funny how we can make images with all kinds of plants and vegetables for example, spinach, tomatoes and turmeric etc. it’s quite confusing to look at them whether to eat or print these days lol #dilemmabelike #photographerproblem #alternativephotography

Trying various alternative and experimental techniques during my residency period including chlorophyll printing and anthotypes. Adjusting my focus and energy to work hard while dealing with pandaemic stress. But whenever I am in darkroom, I can feel my mad scientist mood back on and very excited with the different processes.

So, as I had announced, Since today is July 31, Here are the list of selected participants I carefully decided for Defining Aesthetic Program. Instead of just introducing their names, I would like to highlight each person with the images I like very much from their portfolios and how I feel when I see them. It was a tough decision to select from other brilliant portfolios but I also need to stick to my mindset for starting this program. It's heart warming to read that some also have purposes such as building communities for those who are interested in alternative and experimental photography and furthering education etc etc. I totally support them. We need more diversity in photography, more passion and more creativity.

07/28/2020

Thank you all for sending portfolios to the Defining Aesthetic Program. I do enjoy looking at all the portfolios and they are really a great diversity. Right now, the application period is closed. The class will run and I will announce the list of selected participants on July 31. Have a nice day everyone.

Defining Aesthetic program အတြက္ portfolios ေပးပို႕တဲ့သူေတြအားလုံး ေက်းဇူးတင္ပါတယ္။ စတိုင္မ်ိဳးစုံနဲ႕ ဓာတ္ပံု ေတြၾကည့္ရတာ အားရမိပါတယ္။ Application period ကေတာ့ပိတ္သြားပါျပီ။ ေရြးခံရသူစာရင္းကို July 31 မွာ ေၾကျငာေပးပါမယ္။

If the Desire to Live and Save our Heart and Soul Regardless of Life’s attempts to Disappoint you is not Honesty, what is Honesty? One person can repeat endless circles of misery or Choose to live a life full of Passion and Determination. We can choose to let life kill us or Choose to “Rise Above all insignificant trivialities”. All is in our mind. We Direct our mind. “Art is Not to Seek Attention but to Speak the Truth of the Soul” . My Art always follows this Rule . Every Good and Bad, Dark and Light, Pain and Joy ...everything I create is completely honest to my soul “at that particular moment”. No Sugar Coating, Not looking for approval of others and Validation for my Art and Looking back, I am Very Proud of it. Everyday, we should Celebrate our Survival, How we Stand Strong when life tried to throw dirts to our Soul and still trying (maybe) and How we commit ourselves to Rise Above all difficulties . This is called Will Power. Ode to Honesty to my Art and Soul and the Desire to living. Life is Art. Art is Life.
