algae collection

Sea plants of Lanzarote. Photographs printed in different formats.

On tissue paper, for candle (or other objects) holder glasses and for lamp bottles. The bottles are recicled from Lanzarote wite wines, artisanally cut and sanded.

On 250gms watercolour paper “Caballo 190”, for prints with scientific name on label.
A tribute to Anna Atkins, the botanist who made, using cyanotype, the first photographic book of history: “British Algae” (in three volumes). Her book is now visible on request at the V&A Museum in London and other museums (she did 13 copies, with all original photograms, laying each plant with its label over the sensitized paper).
