The cyanotype process is one of the oldest photographic processes, first introduced by Sir John Herschel (1792 – 1871) in 1842, which produces images through exposure to the sun or uv light. A simple process and suitable for all levels, objects or materials are placed on paper which has been treated with cyanotype solution, after which they are exposed to sunlight and then washed in water, resulting in a white image on a deep Prussian blue background.

Chemicals and paper provided.

Hannah Fletcher is a London based artist and Co-director of London Alternative Photography Collective. She has initiated The Sustainable Darkroom, an artist run research, training and mutual learning programme, to equip cultural practitioners with new skills and knowledge to develop an environmentally friendly photographic darkroom practice.

Hannah Fletcher’s work is rooted in the challenge of intertwining the organic into the photographic medium. She does this while simultaneously exploring environmentally and ecologically-focused issues. Working in an investigative manner, Hannah combines scientific techniques with photographic processes. Creating a dialogue between process and materials, between research and exploration and between the poetic and political, each unfixed and unwashed print a unique object.
