Nætursól/ NightSun
with Dianne Bos & Sarah Fuller
May 27th- June 3rd, 2023 (Registration is complete)

One sun circling around circumpolar indices. An elongated image exposed at midnight. Wind and lava dust embedded in emulsion.


This one-week photography workshop proposes that participants explore the notion of deep geologic time, celestial relationships and the physics of light in the sublime landscape of East Iceland. 


During this workshop, participants will engage in the creation of handmade pinhole cameras, photo lumens, cyanotype and anthotype images, with added inspiration from nature walks and local field trips.


Nætursól/NightSun is hosted by Ströndin Studio, a former herring fish factory that has been converted into a photography studio. Photographer-participants will be provided with unique access to this stunning fjordside location, its charming studio space, and darkroom facility.


Collaborative teaching duo Dianne Bos & Sarah Fuller are the founders of The Institute of Unusual Studies. Both internationally recognized for their professional art practices, they bonded over their special interest in historical photography processes including pinhole photography, large format cameras, the camera obscura and in general, their interest in nature.
