About This Event

Nature photography: now plant-based and solar-powered.

Mark the summer solstice and capture the ephemeral charm of our native plants through the little-known process of anthotype printing. This form of alternative photography makes use of the fragility of plant pigments under strong sunlight to create colorful impressions of foliage and flowers. What better time to try it out than the longest and sunniest day of the year?

While we work under the Green Roof, we’ll discuss the science behind plant pigmentation and anthotype printing and become better acquainted with the ecologically vital species selected for our artworks. Participants will take home their original anthotype plus a second canvas prepared for a future print.
