Healing Lanzarote.
Empty boxes that used to have medicines inside. I recicled them, turning them inside out, and printed in cyanotype, naming them Healing Lanzarote because here the medicine is around you. The medicine is outside now.

On the front of the larger boxes you find the “Active Ingredients”: Embracing Sun, Protecting Sea, Supporting Volcanoes, Powerful Nature. Total: Marvel.

On the back of the box you find the directions, where the idea is a “translation” from a real vintage headache pill box. Inside the box there are tiny bits of lava, which make the “sea sound”  described in the directions.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Family

“Family” is a work made in cyanotype with photographs and flower decorations.

(para el español clica aquí)

Family-poster-web

The portraits of your family (motherline, ancestors, granpas, siblings, etc.) will be printed on canvas with a decoration made with real flowers and plants. Each decoration will be different and the style can be according to your liking.

You only need to choose your favorite photo(s) of your family, and send them in digital format to psaccheri@gmail.com, to be transformed into a beautiful homage to those you love. It will be a personalized work, made only for you.

I will transform your digital image(s) into a negative, and use them together with the flowers and plants to make the final photographic print. My proposal is to have them printed on canvas, with a blue cotton string freely passing through, so to hang them like small flags on a doorway frame, over a fireplace, on a furniture, wall, etc. They will be free to move over the string. The prints will be 15x15cm (6×6″) ca., to fit into a very nice gift box. The price will be 50 euros for one decorated print, and 40 euros for the succesive ones if you want a series of different photos. Cyanotype prints on paper are a simpler option, right to frame them, without the blue cotton string. Price will be 40 euro for one decorated print and 30 for the succesive ones. For a large work, please contact me.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
The image of my grandmother taken in the early 1930’s now printed in cyanotype.

In a search for the feeling of belonging and well-being, inside a context of relationships I’ve being working for many years on my large family tree, built with the help of other people.

my family tree
Family tree of Saccheris in the world

 

I realized how common this feeling, or the search of it, can be throughout the world, being such a basic need in our lives. So I decided to offer this work, to people who are cultivating the same sense of identity and inner healing when loved for what we are inside our family. This work can also be a precious gift.

Please, share this project, if you liked it. Feel free to write me through the contact page if you have any suggestions or if you wish to know more and ask for a personalization.

Thank you very much.

Thanks go to artist Peggy Hartzell.

 

 

Algae collection

My Algae collection.

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

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”.

My series of Lanzarote Algae printed on Arches Platine 310 g cotton paper, using a hake brush for coating the emulsion, leaving the brush strokes visible.

A series of prints on Canson Watercolor paper, framed into a recycled cardboard hand painted frame.

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

These prints have been coated with the cyanotype emulsion using a Hake brush, which gives those nice outer strokes. Paper size is 24×18 cm, ready for a standard frame if you like.

Landscapes in postcard format. Vintage styled lettering and framing.

Medicine-Plants

 

Medicine-Plants.

In an apttempt to mantain health we use medicines, from plants or synthetic. On the matter, some miths or fears reign creating different views.  Trying to artistically approach the matter I photographed some medicinal Plants of Lanzarote and printed them in #cyanotype on Medicine information leaflets. The cardboard frame is a scrap from another cyanotype print.

Plantas-Medicamentos.

En el tentativo de mantener la salud utilizamos medicamentos, procedentes de plantas u obtenidos por síntesis. Sobre la materia, algunos mitos o miedos reinan generando visiones diferentesIntentando acercarme artisticamente al asunto, he fotografiado algunas Plantas medicinales de Lanzarote e impresas en #cianotipia sobre prospectos de Medicamentos. El marco en cartón es reciclado de otra impresión en cianotipia.

Photo with Poetry – limited edition print

Limited edition photograph printed with the classic 1842 Cyanotype formula on Arches Platine, a 100% cotton rag with no alkaline reserve, especially made for alternative photography such as platinum, p.palladium, cyanotype, etc.

The first print I offer you is a wonderful moment at sunset in Famara, Lanzarote. Young boys gliding with gestures that reminded me La Danse by Matisse.

It comes together with a dedicated, free verse poem by Solange Rincón, a good friend and poet living in Maracaibo, Venezuela, who won several prizes and have books published.
