Winter Botanical – Tribute to Anna

This piece was created from plant material gathered from one of the lovely parks here in Cardiff. I plan to make a series of four – one for each season using local flora and fauna.

They will be a tribute to Anna Atkins, who, in 1843 first made cyanotype photograms by placing algae and seaweed directly on the cyanotype paper. She is also considered the first person to publish a book illustrated with photographic images.
