The photography studio of Workshops of Culture is a place dedicated to noble, historical photographic techniques. Here you can learn the secrets of a variety of analogue techniques, see what the work of photographers and lab assistants looked like 100 years ago, commission a custom portrait or purchase landscape photographs..
Can you think of a more beautiful and meaningful place for a photography studio than the Hartwig Alley? The alley is one of the most beautiful corners of Lublin’s city centre, a place named after the Hartwig family, which produced outstanding representatives of Polish culture, including Edward Hartwig, one of the world’s most famous Polish photographers of the 20th century. It turns out that it is possible, though very unlikely.
On October 22, 2015, Workshops of Culture opened a new, permanent photography studio in the Hartwig Alley. This studio focuses on noble, historical photographic processes, where visitors can learn about various techniques of analogue photography and the work of turn-of-the-century photographers and lab technicians. There is also the opportunity to commission a portrait or purchase landscape photographs. During the workshops that take place here, you will meet acclaimed photographers who pass on their knowledge to the next generation. In the summer, the Alley becomes an open-air gallery of works by old masters of photography. At the risk of sounding immodest, we would like to believe that we will pass on our passion for noble analogue photography to the inhabitants of Lublin and Europe. We hope that, inspired by Master Hartwig’s explorations and works, we will all immerse ourselves in noble black and white landscape and portrait photography.
