CIANOTYPE Laboratory, with Patrícia Leal
in partnership with Viver o Verão
07, 14, 27 and 28 of July 2022
In its original and pure form, photography requires the simple combination of a limited number of basic ingredients:
-A surface on which to print the resulting image.
From this basic recipe, the possibilities for experimentation are (almost) endless. This workshop proposes the exploration of the Cyanotype printing process.

His artistic work falls within the domain of environmental aesthetics, reflecting on how we position ourselves in relation to nature, animal, plant and organic species.
