Origins

Rectangle 8.png

Cyanotype is a 170 year old photographic printing process that produces prints in a distinctive dark greenish-blue. The word cyan comes from the Greek, meaning  “dark blue substance.”
The process was invented by Sir John Herschel, a brilliant astronomer and scientist, in 1842. 
However, Herschel did not use Cyanotype for photography, but for reproducing notes. It was a family friend, the 
botanist Anna Atkins, who used the cyanotype printing process in 1843 to create an album of algae specimens. She created the images by placing objects directly on photosensitive paper. She is regarded as the first female photographer.
