This is a cyanotype print on 300g cold pressed paper. I can reproduce it again using the same enlarged negative but the way the daylight sensitive emulsion and watercolour ink is applied, makes each print unique. A cyanotype is an alternative photographic printing process, like blue prints from architectural plans. I assemble them in a dark room, laying enlarged negatives and sometimes botanicals and found objects onto a surface painted with the light sensitive emulsion. I then I go outside and make a contact print in the sunshine. The paper is then washed and turns Prussian blue.

This piece came about quite organically, I was about to paint it pink at one point but instead I decided to try out a double exposure using the botanicals. For me this piece is about being chained to life and yet still being able to dream about springtime coming.
