in so many ways...

in so many colours!
The time I have dedicated into cyanotype printmaking the past few months, has resulted into a pile of blue prints reaching embarrassing to admit volume... I had to do something about it, and here is one of the most successful results: a dos-à- dos concertina solution, holding a number of prints developed on several types of paper and gone through a variety of colour altering methods and experiments.
The images represent snippets from collections of my favorite things, some true to reality, some transformed following my own imaginary narrative, culminating with a digital portrait imprint of my Christiana superimposed on the toned cyanoprint of the same photograph.
title: recollections in the sun
dimensions: 10 x 10 x .5" extending to 60"
materials: variety of printmaking papers, PVA, cotton thread
mood: ecstatic!

  1. I was reading this post Anna and thought 'Surely, she can't have that many cyanotypes'... and then I read that the book extends to 60 inches!! Oh yes, she does have that many cyanotypes..... - how I wish I was in your shoes. Lesley

  3. I love the dos-a-dos element and the way you have used and altered the prints. There seems to be a nice blue side/brown side thing happening as well which unifies the sections. Lots of imagination and just lovely!
