Ellie Young is the founder of Gold Street Studios. Since its establishment in 1999 gold street studios has become the centre for alternative photographic print processes in Australia and New Zealand. The studios provides a resource Centre for photographic image makers and attracts both local and international participants seeking to advance their knowledge and skills in the art, craft and science of traditional handmade
and early photographic print processes.
As the world speeds up and mass production controls our choices there is an increasing desire for hands on creativity and handmade objects, this includes the handmade photograph. In 2000 gold street studios offered some 4 or 5 workshops – in the year 2012 in excess of 40 different workshops are on offer with numerous one to one workshops.
“These processes are a large part of my life – the more I work and explore their possibilities the more it fuels my passion for these beautiful 19th century photographic processes.”
