Cyanotypes

The Cyanotypes

Wikipedia says; Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. Engineers used the process well into the 20th century as a simple and low-cost process to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints. The process uses two chemicals: ammonium iron citrate and potassium ferricyanide.

Alchemist, polymath, collector or ghost hunter for to me the cyanotype is a way to capture the shadow of objects, natural, man-made, drawn. They are a way into illustration where I can watch something come alive, it brings an abundance of uncertainties and quirks and difficulties. I cyanotype mainly to scan and rework them into my narratives however these images have such a natural raw sense to them I want to also share the abundance of cyanotypes I have made over the past 4 years. I want to sell them, no longer hide them in albums and albums of work. Also I do commissioned plants so do get in touch if interested. Etsy shop coming soon.
