Stills – Elementary Blueprint

Here is a nationwide community and individual cyanotype project, put together by Stills (Centre for Photography) in Edinburgh.

Elementary Blueprint was originally planned as a creative experiment for participants across Edinburgh. We wanted to create an alternative photograph of our city using the elements and, in the middle of March, began to post cyanotype paper to community groups and individuals across Edinburgh, with instructions to expose the sheets outdoors, so the paper would be developed by the sun, wind and rain over a 2-week period. We couldn’t have imagined how much the world would change over the weeks ahead. And so Elementary Blueprint has changed too; we are now making this an online project and opening it up to participants from across the UK – we want as many people as possible to take part in this creative project. Help us create an alternative document of this challenging and extraordinary time.
