BEYOND BLUE: CYANOTYPES OF LASZLO LAYTON
The Desert Botanical Garden is pleased to present captivating portraits of nature by celebrated artist, Laszlo Layton. This exhibition features cyanotype photographs of fascinating animals and objects that evoke charm and curiosity.

Layton hand paints each photograph, giving his subjects a vivid, lifelike enchantment.
