Seaweed Eucalyptus – 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 cyanotype then layering it on top of an uncut original cyanotype of Eucalyptus Leaves, giving it a three – dimensional effect. It then becomes a collage of  two 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.
