April 2018. Artist Information Company (a-n), professional development grant award.

This month I have been awarded a professional development bursary from a-n. The bursary will support a self-directed research on the chlorophyll printing process. It will enable me to independently learn in my studio an organic photographic method and to make videos to disseminate knowledge of this little-known printing technique. See more info about the grant on this link

The chlorophyll printing process occurs naturally in plants in the same way we change pigments when we are exposed to different levels of sunlight. Just as our clothes might leave a mark on our skin in the summer, the image above shows an Aloe Vera plant in Tenerife, in which the silhouettes of the outer leaves of the plant are recorded onto the inner leaves.

See more on the chlorophyll printing process on my a-n blog!
