What you'll do

Step back in time and discover the world of a Cyanotype Sun Print. Developed in the mid 1800's this alternative photography technique continues to weave it’s way among creative artists of today. Select one image out of your Iphone from your travels to convert into a film negative. We will coat the light sensitive cyanotype emulsion onto either watercolor paper or linen fabric. We will stroll to Piazza degli Zingari exposing the print directly under the sun for 15 minutes. While we’re waiting, enjoy a complimentary Gelato from one of the most famous Gelateria's in Rome. The final step is to wash away the emulsion then dry it, so your custom work of art will be ready to take back home. •For an additional fee have your linen fabric image sewn onto your choice of a cotton apron or market bag made by my assistant Dawda, a Refugee dressmaker from Gambia. He is also integrating his skills alongside another Airbnb experience, called The Sewing Cooperative. Check out the amazing work the group is creating here in Rome.

Laura Norcia

I relocated to Rome to explore my cultural roots and pursue my career as a freelance photographer. I earned a Bachelors Degree in Art from New York City, where I mastered my skills in black and white. I continue to shoot in film and have dedicated myself to the origins of the photographic process. As a custodian to analog techniques, my passion is to preserve old world traditions allowing me to cultivate this darkroom experience with you.

Where you'll be

We will meet at the Santa Maria Maggiore church then walk to my studio where the workshop will start. After we will go to the Piazza degli Zingari, one of the small gems in my neighborhood where the experience will take place as we watch our prints being exposed upon the ancient stones of Rome.
