WHAT IS A CYANOTYPE?:
The cyanotype (a.k.a. sun-print) process is one of the oldest in the history of photography, and during this digital revolution that we are experiencing, we feel the need to look back at a craft that is handmade, analogue, and using an all-natural light source: the sun.
Our cyanotypes are made by coating high-quality watercolor paper with a light-sensitive emulsion, to then be exposed in direct sunlight for several minutes using a photo negative to get the best image quality. The print is then washed and fixed, to stop the chemical reaction and prevent fading. What you get is an amazing, Prussian blue image, with absolutely no ink involved.
Since each print is handmade, tones may vary slightly- the beauty of cyanotypes is that each print is unique.
