Port Orford Cedar Cyanotype


A unique, one of a kind cyanotype of a branch taken from a Port Orford Cedar.

Created on beautiful Bockingford watercolour paper. This is not a giclee print, it is an original cyanotype. It is mounted in a white mount ready to fit into a standard 12 x 10 ins. frame. Actual image size 10 x 8 ins.

Signed on reverse.

I have used the traditional cyanotype method to create this piece. In creating a cyanotype the final result is determined by many factors such as the time of day, when the position and power of the sun varies, the temperature and humidity, the mix of chemicals, the type of paper used and the length of development. No two are ever the same. That’s what makes it exciting for me even after years of creating them!

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.
