Photography Project

Dunedin Dream Brokerage is proud to present Chris Schmelz with his project Caffenol Cafe 1. RDC Espresso, as a recipient of DDB's latest initiative, Off The Ground.

Caffenol Cafe 1. RDC Espresso is an analogue photography project using coffee to develop film within a café environment. Chris will invite RDC regulars and curious peoples to have their portrait taken in the cafe where they will see the process revealed as he develops the negatives onsite using ‘Caffenol’, a special formula that includes RDC’s unique coffee blend. Portraits will then be digitally printed and available to take away or remain in the café for the finale exhibition.
