A Sense of Place: Site-Specific Cyanotypes with Eric William Carroll

Eric William Carroll Workshop Web Banner

Over the course of three days, participants will learn the cyanotype process & use it to creatively respond to our surrounding environment. Using the methods of William Bartram and the beauty of the Bartram Trail as our foundation, we will explore both cameraless and digital negative approaches and examine how research, history, and site-specificity can inform our work and even function as an unspoken collaborator. This workshop is geared for students with little-to-no experience with cyanotypes, but even a seasoned practitioner should find value in this unique approach to the medium.

This workshop is open to photographers and makers of all levels. Participants will be offered the opportunity to have their photographs juried into the Listening to the Land: Reimagining the Bartram Trail community exhibition in Fall 2023.
