Workshop Overview

Cyanotype photograms are one-of-a-kind photographs made using the sun as a light source. This early 19th century process produces prints with beautiful cyan-blue and white tones. We will explore nature as a group, collecting leaves, grasses and other natural elements from the ground. Participants will learn to coat watercolor paper with cyanotype chemicals and, once dry, make photograms by placing the collected items on the paper and exposing them to sunlight. Each participant will leave with five to seven unique prints.

About the Instructor(s)

Karen Hymer is a visual artist and educator living in Silver City, New Mexico. She holds BFA, MA and MFA degrees in Fine Art Photography and has taught for over 25 years. She sees teaching as an opportunity to present new ways of experiencing the world through interaction with nature and image making. Karen’s current work explores the effects of time on the human body and various plant life. Her richly detailed photogravures emphasize the interplay of texture, pattern, light and shadow in muted earth tones. Her images are visually seductive; a poetic beauty is revealed in often overlooked subjects.
