Anna Skladmann

The Man with the Midas Touch - A Botanical Index of Narcissus


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Rediscover the beauty of Narcissus flowers in photographer Anna Skladmann's new exhibition.

The exhibition is comprised of scans of each flower, created using a technique Skladmann has developed submerging the flowers in multiple kinds of liquids such as milk and water.

This unusual technique utilises the qualities of high definition scanning, while also employing liquid as a hint to old methods of photographing and print making, harking back to botanist and cyanotype pioneer Anna Atkins, and inventor of the scanning technique, Henry Fox Talbot.
