Thursday 15 January 2015
19.45-21.00

A demonstration of alternative photographic processes by two of the exhibiting artists of Capturing Light II:


Constanza Isaza Martinezr - Cyanotype
Arranging objects or acetate drawings on top of the surface of the prepared Cyanotype paper, then exposing to Constansa's UV lightbox and washing in water to fix, results in a cyan-blue print of the objects exposed in delicate x-ray form.
Yaz Norris - Lumen Printing
Instead of exposing a photogram and developing light sensitive paper in the darkroom, Yaz demonstrates the use of UV light to burn into the paper to leave a trace of the object, in this case flowers, embedded in the papers' surface.
