Ferns – 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 two original cyanotype to make ‘windows’, then layering the cut ones on top of a third uncut one to allow what is underneath to show through, giving a three – dimensional effect. It then becomes a collage of three original cyanotypes. 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.
