Cyanotype Photograms of Flora from (covid-19 pandemic) Gardens

A Photogram is a photographic image made without a camera by placing objects directly onto the surface of a light-sensitive material such as photographic paper and then exposing it to light.

Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print.  Anna Atkins, one of the early female photographers, was also a botanist who used cyanotype photograms to identify plants for science. 

Julia’s archival watercolour papers have been hand-coated with light-sensitive chemistry and placed in an antique printing frame with freshly selected garden plant clippings for exposure to the sun.  Each piece is unique. 

Many pieces were created as collaborations between Julia and her 5-year old son Kirk. They found clippings, arranged compositions, and played hide-and-seek together while waiting for exposures. Since COVID-19 impacted Mother and child have had an increased interest in, and have spent more time exploring gardens around Vancouver. 

Capturing pretty, ephemeral textures from garden life in blue–an ode to making the most of present circumstances while also acknowledging the yoke of grief during these strange times.
