One of a kind

Please look carefully at the photos and read the description below!


To test exposure for larger cyanotype prints, I use 8 1/2 x 11" relief print paper. The exposures are tweaked from these tests, but the test prints themselves are great for experimenting with hand coloring, adding emulsion lifts, or- if the exposure is really close to right, simply a nice little print. 


This is a 8.5x11" cyanotype I left in the traditional blue. It's a bit lighter than the print I eventually made on larger paper, but I thought adding a Polaroid emulsion lift would look really cool. And, in my opinion, it does! It's a full size lift so it covers some territory on this small print.


This cyanotype is exactly what you see- no mat, just a print. Process info and my signature are on the back in pencil.


Shafter is a "ghost town" (though people live there) in far West Texas, off Highway 67 between Marfa and Presidio. I pass by every time I head to the state park to camp. When the lighting is right for shooting, or if I just want to stop for fun, I head to this hauntingly beautiful spot: Concordia Cemetary.
