CYANOTYPES (sunprints)
Sunday 30th June 10.30 - 4.00 - Ashmore Village Hall

Cyanotype is a photographic printing method that produces prints with a distinctive Prussian-blue colour.

The process was developed in 1842 by the scientist and astronomer Sir John Herschel, who employed it to reproduce notes and diagrams  (the technology would be widely used in architecture and engineering until the mid-20th century, hence the term “blueprint”).

The first to adopt this technique in photography was botanist and photographer Anna Atkins. She published a volume of algae cyanotypes that is considered to be the first ever book with photographic images.
