February 2020 – Photo Project – Anna Atkins

This month’s photographer inspiration: Anna Atkins

In February, I am gaining inspiration from an English botanist and photographer, Anna Atkins. Born in 1799, Anna Atkins lead an unusual life for a woman of her time. Bought up by her father, who provided her with a scientific education that ultimately led to the area of her life that I will be investigating, her Cyanotype publications.

This photo was created on my phone using an image editing app. I merged two photos, one of blue linen and the other is one of my tree photos.
