About the Instructor

Praise Fuller (b. Houston, Texas) is a visual artist specializing in cyanotypes, an alternative photographic printing process. She explores the mutability of this medium by constantly expanding her practice through experimentation with print, installation, objects, video, and materials.


About the Photographic Process

Cyanotypes are one of the oldest photographic printing processes in the history of photography, invented by Sir John Herschel in 1841. The distinctive feature of the print is its shade of cyan blue, which results from the specific chemicals and exposure to ultraviolet light. This printing technique was used for reproducing technical drawings of architects, engineers, and botanists. However, with its versatility and affordability, the technique was adopted by photographers soon after its discovery.
