Project Description

During this residency, students will experience a hands-on journey where they travel from the digital age back in time to create one of a kind analog photographs. In the process, students will explore the history and fundamentals of photography. Students will begin by capturing and editing images on their Ipads. They will then learn how to invert these images to monochromatic negatives. Each student’s edited image will be printed onto transparency paper before they use UV light to expose a contact print of their image onto sensitized Cyanotype paper.  Students will be amazed to see how their images are transformed as they develop in a solution of water and hydrogen peroxide.

Final Product

Each student will create their own original Cyanotype print, created from an image they have taken and manipulated digitally.
