Instructor: Emiliano Sepulveda
Developed in 1842, the simple and beautiful photographic printing process known as Cyanotype has a rich history. Photographers have made contact prints and photograms, creating images on various materials including textiles, papers and wood. Cyanotypes later became common as Engineers used the process to create diagrams and drawings known as blueprints. Join Vancouver-based artist Emiliano Sepulveda for a walking tour of New West parks and waterfront, and create your own series of cyanotype prints, using found objects, negatives and other ephemera.
About Emiliano Sepulveda: Emiliano Sepulveda is an immigrant visual artist of Mexican descent now local to Vancouver. He is fascinated by how the world is encountered through perception, and his work is a constant practice of creating models for understanding and interacting with this world. This process-based practice incorporates simple actions such as walking or kite flying as ritual practice and is heavily informed by photography. For Sepulveda photography also functions as an uncanny, magical, performative, and sculptural medium. He holds a BFA from Emily Carr University and is an MFA candidate at Simon Fraser University. He is also a recipient of the SFU Graduate Entrance Award, the Steven Shane Graduate Scholarship, the Elsie Jang Scholarship, and the BC Arts Council Scholarship.
