The Soares dos Reis National Museum hosts, on September 9th, two photographic printing workshops in Cianotipia. The sessions take place at 10:30 am and 2:30 pm, lasting two hours each.
Cyanotype is a photographic printing process discovered in 1842 by scientist and astronomer John Herschel. It was botanist and photographer Anna Atkins who explored the process to print her first book “Photographs of British Algae: cyanotype impressions”, considered the first photography book in history.
The proposal for this workshop is to build a kind of collective herbarium printed in cyanotypes which, while being created, will be hung to dry in the garden, bringing together all the cyanotypes produced during the workshop, thus setting up a temporary exhibition outside the museum. . Os participantes levarão para casa os seus cianotipos.
The workshop will be led by Margarida Ribeiro, graduated in Audiovisual Communication Technology (IPP/ESMAE), with a specialization in Photography. He has developed training projects with different educational services exploring alternative photographic techniques. Develops photographic projects in the areas of music, theater, circus, performing arts and fashion.
