Co-presented by ORWO North America **Free 35mm rolls to the first 10 visitors!**

Have fun with the art of traditional photography! Honoring Alice Austen's 150th Birthday, this program will provide the opportunity for exploration of the art of traditional photography and motion picture film thanks to MONO NO AWARE. Activities include hands-on demonstrations, the “Camera Doctor” who can advise on how to get your vintage cameras back up and running, an exhibition of pinhole camera collections, and a selection of vintage cameras to use. Learn to operate the Bolex Rex-5 reflex camera, process and project 16mm motion picture film. 

A vibrant cultural center, the Alice Austen House keeps the daring spirit of the early American photographer alive by showcasing the life, work, and home of Alice Austen (1866-1952). Come explore late 19th century period rooms, changing exhibitions of Austen’s work and contemporary photography, and relish the lovely waterfront grounds with panoramic views of the New York Harbor and Lower Manhattan.
