West Beach Rock- Quonochontaug, Rhode Island

50.00

West Beach is one of the more isolated beaches in Quonochotaug, Rhode Island. This image is a collage of two 4x5 images connected with acid free tape. I’m playing with the idea of breaking down lines and not containing myself to one image to say everything I want to say. I don’t know what I’m trying to say except: this is a great spot and it’s peaceful.

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.
