Acid and lignin-free paper, deluxe pigment print
Inspired by my love of vintage scientific collections, antique posters, and alternative process photography, this cyanotype of bird feathers is part of a series featuring collected items. Cyanotypes are created using a contact print process. The paper stays white where the objects are placed, and turns cyan-blue where it is exposed to the sun. Cyanotype printing is one of the oldest photographic printing methods. I enjoy seeing the sometimes unexpected results.
