Learn how to manipulate a leaf’s ability to photosynthesise and transform it into a light-sensitive surface for creating photographs with Alice Cazenave.

This is an experimental photographic process practiced by Alice Cazenave since 2015. It uses kitchen equipment and low-toxicity chemistry. It is a temperamental process which yields different results based on the plant’s biochemistry.

Unlike the more commonly known chlorophyll process; Pelargonium Printing takes about 3 days to complete, but only 1 hour of this time requires your intervention. It uses geranium leaves as photographic paper.
