Snapshot: Anthotypes

27 April 2021, 19:00 to 19:30
Image shows Tim in the process of making an Anthoype, we are looking over his shoulder at a painted sheet with leaves resting on top.

Redeye's Snapshots are a series of skill sharing workshops, offering quick introductions to new creative ideas and techniques.

Join us for a 30 minute demonstration on Anthotypes from artist Tim Boddy!

Anthotypes, sometimes known as plant prints, are made by a cameraless photography process involving plant juice and the sun’s UV rays. The binding of these two components results in beautifully coloured, ghost-like impressions of plants. Tim will guide you through the materials needed, the process used, plant recommendations, how to crush up matter such as beetroot and spinach and how to ‘paint’ onto the paper. 

This process only requires some plants and paper, making it not only an accessible way of printing, but also very environmentally-friendly. This fun, messy workshop is not one to miss!

Tim is a photographer based in London, and a recent graduate of LCC's Photojournalism & Documentary Photography MA course where he received a distinction.

Tim develops personal documentary-based projects outside of his commercial work. His practice generally centres on the LGBTQ+ community, whom he enjoys working alongside to embolden storytelling and to make the work more representative of the community. His work has appeared in BBC, i-D, and The Guardian to name but a few.

Tim also run arts-based workshops for both the queer, photography, and gardening community, and is also an experienced picture editor and picture researcher.
