The Alt Photo Festival 2013, which runs from 28 February-12 March 2013, will see artists and practitioners speak about their work with alternative processes. Some employ cameras of sorts, others use no cameras at all.

Organised by Edinburgh artists Kenny Bean and Susanne Ramsenthaler, this festival brings together eighteen photographers across three venues in Edinburgh. The main venues involved this year are the Botanic Garden, Edinburgh College of Art and Stills Gallery.

All of the workshops and events are free or highly subsidised and are open to everyone from experienced photographers to the total beginners. 

Last year's festival centred around the most basic form of photography using an old box and a piece of light sensitive paper. This year the Alt Photo Festival widens the area of interest to include many more photographers using a wide variety of chemical and film based photography.  Also new to the festival is a large exhibition that will be on display at the Edinburgh Art College. 

Making a return to the Botanic Garden venue is the large darkroom where a daily workshop in tin box photography along with new weekend workshops making plant inspired photograms will run. 

More information about the festival and artists exhibiting can be found on the Alt Photo Festival website.
