Cyanotypes. Objects and landscapes

Cyanotype is an early monochromatic photographic printing process that can be used to make a cyan-blue copy of an object or an image, known as a blueprint. It was invented in 1842 by Sir John Herschel and immediately taken up by British botanist Anna Atkins, who published a book exclusively illustrated with blueprints of algae.

In the workshop Blueprints. Objects and Landscapes, we will create an album of prints. First we will imagine compositions of negative shapes and objects, and then arrange and capture them on paper. The physical evidence of our selection will be a collection of blue-tinted images.

This activity is organised in conjunction with the exhibition Miró and the Object, which we will visit as part of the workshop.
