Science meets nature in this magical photographic process

WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT? 

Design and make your own Cyanotypes. Science meets nature in this magical photographic process. It was invented in 1842 using natural light instead of a camera. Place ferns, flowers, feathers or leaves onto paper or fabric to block the sunlight and create a silhouette.  Although the process is simplicity itself, it is at it’s best extraordinarily complex. You will be creating ‘photograms’ outside using the sun, the outcome can be unpredictable, as you start to deal with the intricacies of light. This is an alternative, liberating way of producing a photographic image, the only certainty is it will always be blue.

Check out early examples of the art - Fox Talbot was an early adopter, but it was his friend, the British botanist and photographer Anne Atkins who created the first book of prints in 1851 and perfected the process. For inspiration from the past it is worth a look at her images before starting to forage for flora.
