This is a hand-printed Cyanotype of an original photograph.
The cyanotype process is one of the oldest in the history of photography, and during this digital revolution that we are experiencing, we feel the need to look back at a craft that is handmade, analogue, and using an all-natural light source: the sun!
To give you some background info, our cyanotypes are made by coating high-quality watercolor paper with a light-sensitive chemical, to then be exposed in direct sunlight for several minutes using a photo negative. Then the print is washed and fixed, to stop the chemical reaction and prevent fading. What you get is an amazing, unique, Prussian blue image, with absolutely no ink involved!
Please note, these prints are handmade and each one will be different. There may slight blemishes such as spots and discolourations, but these all add to the unique charm of such a traditional photography technique.
