Cyanotypes at Spike Island

Prints developing in the bus stop: Charlotte Biszewski‘s cyanotype session at Spike Island in Bristol.

One giant banner of tracing paper transferred onto the prepared paper for exposure by the sun (which happily obliged, despite rain forecast).

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.
