Cyanotype Process

Students taking the Beginning Alternative Processes class taught by Chris Nail work diligently on their Cyanotype prints. Discovered in 1842, by Sir John Herschel, the Cyanotype process allowed photographers to create vibrant blue images when exposed to light. Throughout the semester, students in this class will be learning how early photographers created and printed 19th and 20th images using raw chemicals and hand coated papers.
