'The Winter Garden' exhibition of cyanotype prints by Gabrielle Radiguet to 23rd December 2016.

This was a photographic exhibition like none I've seen before.

"The cyanotype process was developed in the 1840's by John Herschel. When mixed with water and combined these two chemicals* produce a light sensitive emulsion which, when exposed to sunlight, produces a vivid cyan blue photographic image."

The Winter Garden is a collection of flowers, feathers and grasses which have been exposed to the sunlight to produce the delicate and evocative images in the collection.

* Potassium Ferricyanide and Ferric Ammonium Citrate.
