Blue Hill Repeater -Cyanotype

35.00

Four images made with a Zeiss Ikon folding camera of the hills near Bartlett lake, north of Phoenix. The negatives are printed as cyanotypes and assembled as something of an imagined landscape. I like seeing what the camera can do and how it sees. I like the folding cameras because I can control the exposure, focus, and depth of field while still leaving a lot up to chance.

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”.
