waltz #1 (paper negative cyanotype)

100.00

Cyanotype is one of the oldest photographic processes, and this work was made with a combination of analog and digital process. 

A paper negative was exposed in an 8"x10" view camera of the still life: nests and natural ephemera collected while at a residency at Penland Winter 2015. The paper negative was then scanned, and a large digital negative created, which was then used to make the image on cyanotype-sensitized paper with UV light. 

The RIVES BFK printmaking paper (22"x30") with a beautiful deckled edge, was hand-coated with the chemical solution, exposed, and washed out with water. The exposure process takes about 30 minutes, and then is hand-washed and hung to dry. 

As is the nature of anything truly hand-made, a certain degree of unpredictability and variety is expected - so each print is unique - which includes a few blips and errant drops (example noted in pictures) which are a charming part of the process. 

Prints will be shipped flat in cardboard with love.
