The Phillips Collection is honored to host one of the world’s few remaining experts in the héliogravure process, the oldest photographic technique dating to 1826. Master intaglio printer Fanny Boucher of Atelier Helio’g, Paris, France will be in Washington to conduct two unique hands-on workshops and a panel discussion in collaboration with DC and Paris based artists.
The panel discussion about the history and continued relevance of héliogravure to photojournalism and contemporary art practice will include Fanny Boucher, French photojournalist Edouard Elias who has collaborated with Atelier Helio'g on several projects, and The Phillips Collection Chief Curator and Deputy Director for Academic Affairs Klaus Ottmann. The discussion will be moderated by Lely Constantinople, a Washington, DC based photographer who studied the process with Ms. Boucher at Atelier Helio’g in 2016.
These events are made possible by a Sister City grant from the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, The Phillips Collection, and STABLE.
