A new instalment to our Ottawa Platform Series, we are offering an evening with Matt Hinther as he guides you through the new-ish alternative process of film and paper development – Caffenol!

What is Caffenol?
The Caffenol process is a much less toxic development process using simple ingredients to develop and print B&W film.

Who will benefit from this presentation?
People with home-based darkrooms or those working in shared darkrooms who want to work in a less toxic environment!

Who is Matthew Hinther?
Born and raised in Ottawa, Matthew became interested in photography at a young age, influenced by his father, grandfather, and great grandfather who were all photographers. An avid photographer in both B&W and digital media, Matthew processes primarily with Caffenol for his large format and 35mm projects.
