A nineteenth-century inspired daguerreotype studio will be installed at the conference venue, Universidade Lusófona.
Thanks to LUPA – Luís Pavão Lda. , you will rediscover one of the first techniques of photography and take the result back home with you.
This unique experience will take around 2 hours, during which you will be invited to participate in the several stages of the process: polishing the brass plate, preparing a pose with clothing and props of your choice, exposure of the plate to iodine vapors to create a light-sensitive surface, image development, fixation and gilding, and finally the packaging of the plate in a case specifically designed for this event.
This beautiful daguerreotype was recently taken for the preparation of the dag studio. This is the portrait of the daguerreotypists team. From right to left: Luís Pavão, Inês Fernandes and Paula Lourenço.
