Bronwen Hazlett

Bronwen Hazlett has lived all over the world. She works in many mediums and here she shows us how she combines cyanotype and vandyke brown.
From: Dover, Delaware USA.
Shows: Blue Van Dyke (Cyanotype and Van Dyke Brown).


Bronwen Hazlett is from many places but nowhere specific. Her dad was a career Navy doctor who took her family from Japan, to the Mid-Atlantic states, and back to Japan again before she went to art school. She has a BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in Photography as well as an MFA in Photography from Academy of the Art University. She has had many different careers, such as a jewellery designer, graphic designer, advertising agency photographer, stay-at-home Mom, high school Design Teacher, and adjunct photography professor.

Other than photography, Bronwen Hazlett is accustomed to working with multiple mediums such as textiles, found objects, and collage. Since receiving her first camera at 6, she has photographed continuously. Her current work with Blue Van Dykes relates the chemical reactions between Cyanotype and Van Dyke Brown to a philosophical alchemy of Hazlett’s life experiences.

“I photograph and create images because I want to explore, make mistakes, make a mess, have fun, learn about things, and listen to what they teach me.”
