Black Coffee @ no fixed address - NtBd Studio Launch
Saturday July 21 2012
8a Atkin St, North Melbourne (off Queensberry St between Errol St and Curzon St)
1840s Wet plate photography demo with portraits developed on the spot IN COFFEE!
Until recently, this warehouse on the bluestone backstreets of North Melbourne housed three creative, motivated dudes and a whole bunch of junk. But in a surge of Autumnal inspiration the boys have cleaned, cleared, pasted and painted in order to relaunch NtBd (Not Bad) Studios this Saturday.
Housing a photographer, a graphic designer and a motorbike fanatic, NtBd is a creative space to enable the boysâ professional and DIY passions, interests and then some. The NtBd warehouse comprises a motorbike workshop, a photography studio and a live music rehearsal room along with a comfy couple of couches to perch while you appreciate our percolations.
Motorcycles will be on display along with the work of resident photographer Ben Clement and Mathew Kovacs will be demonstrating ancient analog photography techniques by taking portraits and developing directly on tin using coffee and orange juice.
