About artwork

Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. 

Unlike photographs set in silver, like in black and white photography, cyanotypes are using a solution of iron compounds.

The photograph can be taken with a camera, and the resulting photo turned into a negative that can be used to make an image by contact print on handmade cyanotype paper.

The photographs on display were all taken by David and processed using the 19th-Century monochrome photographic printing method.

Each individual print is unique due to the changing of the uv light exposure period and application of chemicals during every printing process.
