Botanical Portraits

Two cyanotypes from Maria Passarotti's Botanical Portrait series were chosen by juror Tricia Rosenkilde to be included in Soho Photo's Juried Alternative Process Competition. Inspired by such subjects as Victorian paper cuts and the botanical photograms of scientist Anna Atkins, Passarotti's Botanical Portraits combine figural imagery with photograms to create hauntingly beautiful images where the subject is married to their landscape.

Opening Reception: Tuesday, 6-8 PM, November 6, 2007
Dates: November 6 - December 1. 2007
Location: Soho Photo, 15 White Street, NYC
