Sun Gardens presents exquisite facsimiles of Anna Atkins’s groundbreaking cyanotypes. One of the earliest women photographers, Atkins perfected the art of using natural materials to create uniquely bold and delicate forms. Her creations have gone on to inspire generations of image makers since. Sun Gardens was printed with exacting attention to the tone and richness of the blues that result from the cyanotype process. Printed on a beautiful uncoated paper, it feels like you could be holding one of Atkins’s prints yourself. This one of a kind book is a comprehensive view of one of history’s finest photographers.
