Cyanotypes: One of the early photographic processes, invented in 1842 by Sir John Hirschel, was the cyanotype. It is based on sunlight causing a change in a light sensitive emulsion brushed onto paper or fabric. Many of the early photographic images were called “sun prints” because they had to be exposed using UV lights, or sunlight. During the summer months, we will expose in the sun, during the other seasons, we will make the cyanotypes using UV lights and learn to tone the prints using non-toxic chemicals. This is a contact print process and you will need negatives the size you would like your final image to be. Students will need to either bring negatives or materials for photograms or, combine a digital negative workshop with this one. Watercolor paper and brushes also need to be supplied by the student. Cyanotype chemicals will be provided.
