The Hellenic Series

An exhibition of cyanotypes of major and minor Hellenic archaeological sites by Benedict Luxmoore.

They are cyanotypes, a photographic printing process that involves applying a light sensitive emulsion on to paper, and exposure in sunlight. They gave rise to the architectural blueprint. Each of my photographs are unique because of the variations within the cyanotype method; imperfections and brushstrokes are an integral part.

Meet the Artist Thursday 26 May, 6.30pm-8.30pm
