Cyanotypes

During the last few years, despite the intermittent nature of sunshine in Britain, I have been experimenting with cyanotypes or sun prints.

As a photographer, I love the atmospheric quality of the results. I also love the rather unpredictable nature of this medium and of course it's utter simplicity as one of the first forms of photography.

I'm particularly interested in exploring memory, or the difficulties of truly remembering things such as faces or places. I'm also keen to use negatives which require a very long exposure. At the moment I'm combining these with pressed flowers as the resulting images are slightly vintage and somewhat ethereal in nature.

I am also exploring instant photography, using a Leica Sofort camera. It’s limitations give it a sort of filmic, nostalgic quality.
