About Wendy

Wendy Sawatzky’s imagery marries lo-fi and high-tech, combining vintage and obsolete equipment with digital technology and alternative printing methods.

Her work includes stereograms and photograms, cyanotypes and cinemagraphs, anaglyphs and gifs. She experiments with Victorian magic-lantern techniques, lomography and iphoneography.
