Cyanotype is a magical process of printing by contact with ammonium citrate and ferricyanide, on different types of supports sensitized in advance with this photosensitive emulsion. To obtain a print, one can make drawings on rhodoïd, photograms (direct printing of objects placed on the support) or photographs (printing through a negative at the desired size) by placing them on the photosensitized support, then after exposure to the sun or in a sunlight and washing with clear water, the print is revealed. The result of the photographic print is a beautiful bluish tint.
During this week, the idea is to take pictures, to learn the different phases of cyanotype printing through the installation of an artisanal laboratory and then, to set up a personal project from gestures or actions allowing to link the photograph to the drawing or to the object on the same plane, to customize photographs by intervening on them or to make super-printed images.
Courses are taught in French. Material to be provided by the trainee (list communicated at registration).
