Now through the end of February, cyanotype botanical prints by Laurie Snyder will be on dislplay in the Nevin Welcome Center. Laurie Snyder is an Ithaca resident and former photography faculty at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, MD. She will be exhibiting botanical cyanotypes (also called blueprints). The cyanotype process is one of the earliest photographic processes,
introduced in England around 1840. The images are based on the light
sensitivity of iron salts and are blue and white. Most of the images were made in Ithaca with plant material collected near her home and from Cornell Plantations.
