Cyanotypes: Beyond the Blue

Sir John Herschel invented the cyanotype process in 1842 by treating paper with an iron-salt solution. As one of the earliest photographic processes, cyanotypes are known for their signature Prussian blue color. The paper is developed by sunlight, making the cyanotype process a favorite among amateur photographers through the turn of the last century. This process is now in revival and contemporary photographers are embracing the blue hues, as well as experimenting with toning techniques for a moody, otherworldly aesthetic. For this exhibition, Don’t Take Pictures seeks contemporary cyanotypes that go beyond the blue.

The exhibition will be published online from May 24 — August 22.
