Sunography

Place any object on the Sunography paper, expose in bright sunlight, and rinse with water to reveal a rich blue print. Sunography paper contains light sensitive materials, which react to sunlight. What’s more each sheet or fabric square can be exposed on two sides both front and back. The superior quality of the paper produces finely detailed prints.

Sunography is a great platform for creativity. Use old photo negatives, x-rays, bits of lace, leaves, printed transparencies or even household objects to compose designs. Sunlight sensitive material (the cyanotype) was a forerunner of modern photographic processes. This type of print dates back to 1842 and was popularised by Anna Atkins, widely regarded as one of the first female photographers.
