Anticipation – Original Cyanotype Collage


This dramatic, light-filled Cyanotype is an original one of a kind work of art.  This work of art is created by cutting shapes out of white Bockingford watercolour paper then layering it on top of an uncut original cyanotype of  monstera adansonii (cheese plant) leaves, giving it a three – dimensional effect. It is unframed. Size 11 x 7.5 ins.

The Cyanotype process was developed by Sir John Herschel in the 1840’s and shortly after used by the pioneering female early photographer Anna Atkins. A method of photography using sunlight without the use of a camera.
