Florigin Photogram Five
Every hand produced print is an original artwork, created using traditional photographic printing techniques. Jo's collections are inspired by botanicals, foraged on her rural property in Ontario.
The prints are created using a cameraless technique called a photogram. The photogram is a 'contact print' process, with objects placed directly onto the surface of light-sensitive materials, and then developed.
Size: Print size 11x14 inches / Mount size 16x20 inches
Framed: No - your print is ‘hinge mounted’ in a white mat ready to be placed in a frame of the buyers choice.
Support: Print on resin coated paper
Medium: Handmade Photographic Darkroom Print
Note: As a result of the printing technique, each print is individually created, and each one is unique.
About the Artist
I’m Jo Thomson, a photographer and a photo-artist based in Mono, ON. I create unique art prints, made using foraged botanicals and slow, traditional photographic processes.
Due to the nature of the process, each print I create is an original. My brand name, Florigin, is a play on “Flora’ and ‘Original’.
I work with two processes, the Photogram, created in a traditional darkroom, and the Cyanotype, created by exposure to the sun. I truly love experimenting and evolving my work with both processes and am often surprised by the results.
I have been active in the creative industries for over 20 years, both as a freelance commercial & social photographer, and as a director of our Design Studio, Believe in.
Florigin was born from a strong desire to return to my roots of traditional printing and to be creative without the constraints of a client brief. I find a deep satisfaction from the knowledge that my work brings joy to others and am honoured when they choose to display a piece in their environment.
