Drugstore Photograms / by Kate Farrall


Processing the Drugstore – a project where artist, Kate Farrall spent a lunch hour at the local drugstore buying supplies to make photograms (camera-less photo images) right in the store. She purchased the film and light-up objects then exposed the 35mm film in a light-safe bag that she created using a coat purchased there. The exposed film was then developed and printed in-store which means that these photos were created start-to-finish in the drugstore.

Consumer and producer are the roles Kate plays while the drugstore is also a participant in the production - without them, this project wouldn't be possible.

Watch the video. The resulting images follow the process you see on the video.

A big thanks goes out to my friend and artist, Amy Green, for helping to bring this project to light.
