dear as sisters is a videode to Anna Atkins and Anne Dixon, makers of the first photobook which catalogs botanical specimen using the early photographic technique of the cyanotype. Reenacting Anne and Anna’s own process, the video tells their story through photograms with text and decorative botanical borders. In a time when image making is cheaper and faster than ever before, the piece reminds us of the inherent slowness of early photography, and asks us to consider how the way we take pictures places value on the world we capture. 2019.
