2020 exhibition

cyanotype is an old photographic printing process which creates prints in beautiful cyan-blue shades.

first used to copy drawings or document the shapes of different plants in the 19th century

it is now an almost forgotten technique due to improved photography.
 

it's a handcrafted print:

 you mix the chemicals

with water which creates a

 photosensitive mixture.

this you can apply to an absorbent underground, blow-dry and expose to uv rays –

special light bulbs or the sun itself.

 

by using negative images it’s possible to create blue-shade photoprints in any size and form – and by changing time of exposure,

composition of chemicals or the surface

different results can be achieved.
