Moon from NASA

This image is made from a digitized negative of the original scanned film from the Saturn Missions. It is printed as a cyanotype and measures roughly 4x4 inches. 

Cyanotypes are made by contact printing a negative to the sensitized paper and exposing it to ultraviolet light (sunlight). Prints are “developed” in a slightly acidic water bath and finished in a solution of hydrogen peroxide, which accelerates the oxidation process and creates intense blues. 

Cyanotypes are one of the most stable printing processes. Cyanotypes made over 150 years ago have retained their original contrast and colors. That’s neat.
