As many cyanotypers know, Anna Atkins was a pioneer and the first person to make a book with photographs. We are announcing a call for entries to create cyanotypes in Anna Atkins’ style. 12 cyanotypes will be selected for a calendar.

180 years ago, in 1843, the first book of photographs was published by Anna Atkins. To mark this we want to make a diary or calendar of “Anna Atkins’ tribute prints” that is leaves, plants, feathers and lace arranged in a print.

Any profits from sales of the calendar will contribute towards the costs of running AlternativePhotography.com.

How to prepare:

This event is open to Supporting Members.
Opens: Beginning of March
Deadline: 16th of March (Anna Atkins’ birthday)
