CYANOTYPE Laboratory, with Patrícia Leal
in partnership with Viver o Verão
July 07, 14, 27 and 28, 2022


In its original, pure form, photography requires the simple combination of a restricted number of basic ingredients:

-An opening;
-A surface on which to print the resulting image.

From this basic recipe, the possibilities for experimentation are (almost) infinite. This workshop proposes the exploration of the Cyanotype printing process.

She is a PhD student in Artistic Studies at FCSH / Universidade Nova de Lisboa and was awarded a grant by FCT to develop a research on the landscape of post-colonial memory in contemporary Portuguese art.
