Luis Camnitzer of Pratt's Institute New-York comes to Valdottavo in Italy to teach multi-plate color-etching. He focusses on photo-etching on light sensitive plates. Students apply soft- or hardground, 'liftground' and make multi-plate etchings. With Camnitzer and assistant David Finkbeiner the artist practises PHOTO-etching: once a photo has been transfered on a light sensitive plate it becomes an etching to be inked, wiped and printed like an etching.

As resin particles are used for photographic transfer an aquatint box is needed.Too little or too much resin leaves a photo without contrasts or drowns it in powder. A photo can become a work of Art. Talbot in England, Karel Klic in Cschechoslovakia - the Talbot-Klic process - set the pace for master photographers like Alfred Stieglitz.

Camnitzer has his Conceptual Art kept in the MoMA museum. In 1981 the artist opens her Studio 'Le Carroz' in Saint-Triphon: she paints farms, barns and fountains or the landscape in oils, but continues work in etching and she spends years of making dust grain photo etchings until 1988.
