Algae collection

My Algae collection.

Sea weeds of Lanzarote, photographed and printed in different formats.

The prints of algae, each with its scientific name, are made on Fabriano Accademia 350g  paper. Although with a personal different technique and style they are a tribute to Anna Atkins, the botanist and first woman photogrpher who made, using cyanotype, the first photographic book of history: “British Algae”.

 

Still available my series of algae printed on paper using a hake brush for the emulsion, without frame.

 

On glasses and on bottles, the print is made on tissue paper.
