Bartlett, come in Bartlett! - Cyanotype

45.00

Quiet landscape photography gets boring after a while and I like seeing breaking things down in front of me and putting them back together later. I just think it’s more interesting that way. Lot’s of people trot around with big cameras and never really see anything. I’m trying to connect things and want my photos to show that.

It’s never perfect. It always requires attention and forgiveness.

Made with three 4x5 negatives and connected with acid free tape.

The Cyanotype process was discovered by Sir John Hershel in 1842 and used to duplicate drawings and notes as “blueprints”. This was used well into the 20th century for the same purpose. A cyanotype’s primary characteristic is its deep blue color. 

A cyanotype is very archival. Images produced in the mid 1800’s have retained their original tones and densities. For such a humble process, cyanotypes really are “true blue”.
