Alice Cazenave, a photographic artist and scholar who is a doctoral researcher at Goldsmiths, University of London, is leading workshops for the RIT community focused on the convergence of art/photography and sustainability. Cazenave's research is centered on the chemical and social worlds of photographic industries. She examines the afterlives of photographic metals and chemistries, and how they change people's lives and ecologies. These workshops will build from her research to explore the potential of using plants to make low-toxicity photographic chemistries.

Plant-based photography artist talk and photo garden workshop | 12-2 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 21 (Gannett Hall 3153)

The talk explores the chemical and ecological legacies of the Kodak industry and examines plant species growing in silver mining sites. It proposes a starting point in the design of a photographic garden, to be expanded by the group collectively.
