Cyanotypes Gallery

Cyanotypes Gallery

The images in this gallery are photographs of the Originals of botanical Cyanotypes. 
Cyanotypes are created with one of the oldest photographic techniques (developed by Sir John Herschel in 1842), whereby a paper is coated with UV-light sensitive chemicals, an object is placed on top (usually covered by glass) and the paper is exposed to sunlight, leaving a negative image of the object. Each image is completely unique and cannot be recreated. No camera is involved in their creation. During exposure and subsequent fixing in a waterbath, the chemicals turn from a yellowish-green to the characteristic prussian blue-cyan colour, giving the process its name. For most of my cyanotypes I use an alternative technique called wet cyanotype first developed by Krista McCurdy whereby the paper is wetted again before exposure and can be exposed for a lot longer which allows a greater variety of colours and textures to develop.

The Originals of my cyanotypes are for sale in beautiful black or white wooden frames in my SHOP. 
Hang out of direct sunlight to protect the colours.
