Back from Italy

Ten days in a 17th century Baroque Italian villa in Tuscany ... AMAZING. I haven't been out of the country since I was 13 years old so this was a trip of a lifetime for me.

I was there with a group organized by Alchemy Studio to learn about shooting with a pinhole camera and making cyanotypes (with film negatives as well as photograms). Called Light Into Matter, the workshop also included writing sessions with Mary Kay Zeeb. The food was sublime, the village and surrounding landscape breathtaking, my fellow artists and instructors open and  inspiring.

I came home seeing light in a new way that I'm sure will translate into my work going forward.

I was pleased with my experiments in Cyanotype. The botanical photograms were fun and freeing while using wax as a resist on some pieces was a happy discovery. The highlight was definitely creating finished work with pinhole negatives.
