The cyanotype process

Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. The process was invented by the English scientist Sir John Herschel in 1842 and was subsequently taken up by Anne Atkins, the pioneer female photographer.

The cyanotype prints

These prints are taken from the allotments and edgelands of the city where things are left alone or forgotten. These simple specimens are literally caught in the sunlight where their innate character develops into an object of individual beauty.
