Magical and simple cyanotypes are an alternative photographic process that results in graphic blue and white prints.
Developed in 1841 by Sir Jon Herschel, the cyanotype process was used by botanist Anna Atkins Atkins to make the first ever photographic book in 1843.
In this pop-up event, MAC Artist in Residence Madge Evers will use an experimental form of the cyanotype process that allows her to work in situ; she will create a series of images on paper that use and depict the flora of MAC.
Evers will begin at one location and walk to several other areas, collecting and composing in each spot. At the end of the event, Evers will process the compositions in water in front of the Visitor Center. All are welcome to observe and ask questions.
Exact location to be determined, check for an announcement on July 17, or stop by the Visitors Center day-of to ask for the location.
