WESTPORT — Photographer Fruma Markowitz is the guest artist for the month of December at the Westport Book Shop.

A selection of photos by Markowitz, from a project called “Sara’s Trousseau,” will be on exhibit for the rest of the month during regular business hours at the store, 23 Jesup Road.

The exhibit features nine Cyanotype prints and collages using photographic images Markowitz made “of non-matching teacups she inherited from her mother, together with imprints of crocheted and embroidered linens she’s found at flea markets and tag sales,” according to an announcement from the book shop.

Cyanotype, according to the announcement, is a “photographic process, invented in 1842, where a light-sensitive photographic emulsion applied to paper turns a brilliant Prussian blue when exposed to a UV light source, such as the sun.”

 “I try to bring focus to everyday things that other people might overlook, but that are significant, troubling or wonderful to me,” Markowitz said in the announcement.

She earned a BFA in photography at the Bezalel Academy of Art & Design in Jerusalem and a master’s in interactive technology at NYU. She is a member of the Artists Collective of Westport, the Silvermine Guild, the Rowayton Arts Center, the Ridgefield Guild of Artists and the Creative Center in New York City.
