Join Photographer Meghann Riepenhoff, as she explores innovative new possibilities of the cyanotype process, one of the oldest photographic print processes.
Riepenhoff's unique cyanotypes are often large in scale, in direct collaboration with the landscape, and without the use of a camera. She starts off by coating paper with a cyanotype emulsion and then places the paper into the natural world. By exposing the paper to sunlight and water (waves, rivers, rain, snow, ice, etc.), Riepenhoff is able to create dynamic photographs while engaging with the elements of nature and chance.
Her work addresses ideas of impermanence, the unknown, and human connection to–as well as the impact on–the environment. Meghann Riepenhoff splits her time between Bainbridge Island, WA and San Francisco, CA, and was the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship in photography in 2018.
