The Sustainable Photography AG is dedicated to developing a less environmentally damaging practice of photography through experimental techniques that open up new fields of possibilities for visual design.
Part of the group research carried out this semester was the extraction of pigments from plants, in addition to the introduction to analogue plant-based photographic developers. With the aim of being able to print digital photographs with our own inks, we have recently focused on the technique of anthotype.
In this process, images - photographs or photograms - are made from plant pigments that lose their glow when exposed to sunlight. In this way, ephemeral and delicate images are created that point us to the fragility of our environment.
