A nineteenth-century inspired daguerreotype studio will be installed at the conference venue, Universidade Lusófona.
Thanks to LUPA – Luís Pavão Lda. (www.lupa.com.pt), 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.
