Isolation – Original Cyanotype


This emotional, light-filled cyanotype is an original one of a kind work of art.  A combination of Ivy Flowers and Ruckus  original cyanotypes on Bockingford watercolour paper. It is created by cutting shapes out of an original Ivy cyanotype to allow the Ruckus underneath to show through, giving a three – dimensional effect. It is a collage of two original cyanotypes mounted on a white sheet of Bockingford watercolour paper, giving it a 1cm white border. 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.
