Community Cyanotype Workshop
New Orleans Healing Center
September 29, 2018
10am – 4pm
FREE | All Ages | Please RSVP

PhotoNOLA, in partnership with the New Orleans Healing Center, is pleased to present a free community workshop in celebration of World Cyanotype Day. On Saturday, September 29, photographers and artists across the globe will gather in backyards, parking lots, galleries and parks to connect, create and celebrate the cyanotype, a simple and fun antiquarian photographic process. People of all ages are invited to come learn and play.

Cyanotype, a photographic printing process that results in graphic blue and white prints, is the perfect place to start an education in alternative (non-silver) photographic processes. Invented by Sir John Herschel in 1842, not only is this medium low in cost and simple to master, it also creates beautiful and distinctive results.

Schaefer’s photographs have been exhibited internationally, including one-person exhibitions in the Amerika Hauses in Munich, Hamburg, Hannover and Frankfurt, Germany; Kulturhaus in Graz, Austria; a 25-Year Retrospective at the Huntsville Museum of Art, in Alabama; the Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan in Delhi, and the Government Museum and Art Gallery in Chandigarh, India.
