Swiss photographer Annette Golaz experiments with a variety of 19th century photographic processes like gum, platinum/palladium, salted paper and cyanotype printing. She researched the toning of cyanotypes with botanicals and developed a tricolor cyanotype process.

Annette Golaz has contributed to Christina Z. Anderson’s Cyanotype book and is the author of the book “Cyanotype Toning: Using Botanicals to Tone Blueprints Naturally” in the same Routledge series on Contemporary Practices in Alternative Process Photography. She is also pushing boundaries when using more modern outdated cameras, for example a 20-year old Apple digital device with 0.3 megapixels. In 2020 she did win third price in the Krappy Kamera® Competition by the Soho Photo Gallery, New York.

Annette Golaz has painted for years but today photography is her preferred medium. Alt Processes are the perfect blend of the two art forms. She has exhibited her work in Switzerland and the USA. She teaches tricolor cyanotype workshops. Golaz is a teacher and journalist by training, she is head of photography of a Swiss publishing house for cookery books and is the editor of a food magazine.

“It’s always about light. It changes permanently and so do the objects that are immersed in it. My heart skips a beat when things start to look soft, nostalgic or dreamlike.”
