Inga Lisa Middleton is a graduate of the Royal College of Art and has had a prestigious 25-year career in photography and filmmaking. More recently Middleton has begun exploring the medium of cyanotype prints, beginning with her series “Thoughts of Home”. Exhibited in the UK, Denmark and Iceland, the series shies away from sentimentality while expressing nostalgia for the artist’s Icelandic homeland. Middleton’s latest cyanotype project is titled Underwater Wonders and celebrates life in the oceans.
The cyanotype technique was developed in the mid-19th century for reproducing text and drawings as blueprints. It involves placing a negative directly on top of paper coated in sensitizer solution. The term cyanotype derives from cyan, the blue color that characterizes the pictures.
Inga Lisa Middleton is of dual nationality, Icelandic and British, and works in both countries.
