About the editor

Malin Fabbri grew up in Sweden, and in her early twenties moved to London to study. She earned an M.A. in Design at Central St. Martin’s School of Design, but publishing her thesis felt more like a beginning than an end. Malin decided to combine her academic and practical experience and started in 2000. The website still maintains its origins as a source of information and research for alternative photographic processes and represents almost 400 artists. Malin actively manages the expansion of the site as editor. She researches alternative photographic processes, makes her own prints and runs workshops. Malin has also worked professionally with big media names like Time magazine and CNBC Europe. Malin is the co-author of Blueprint to cyanotypes and From pinhole to print, the editor of the alternative photography art book Alternative Photography: Art and Artists, Edition I representing 115 artists working in alternative photographic processes, and the author of Blueprint to cyanotypes – Exploring a historical alternative photographic process,  a beginners book on cyanotypes, Anthotypes – Explore the darkroom in your garden and make photographs using plants, which is the only book dedicated to the anthotype process, Anthotype Emulsions, Volume 1 which contains the anthotype research of 100 artists from World Anthotype Day, and creator of two notebooks Anthotype notes – Document your anthotype process, and Cyanotype notes – Document your cyanotype process. She has a strong interest in all alternative processes. Malin now lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden and has two sons, Maximillian and Ruben.
