Cyanotype Gallery

  1. Nothing new in these images, they are actually quite bad from a composition point of view. They are all cropped up and make it difficult for the eye to follow the subject matter. Then there is all the blah…blah about insecurities and all that rubbish and the art talk and the lack of a decent darkroom… We all processed our images in the bathroom and have been doing so for a long time. If you went digital, that is your choice, but do not compare digital to traditional photography as they are two different things.

    Anway, I hope that this criticism will improve your images. Maybe it is time to read once again the text books that I hope you did read while in art school.

    • Thanks for dropping by and giving criticism. The close-up viewpoint was intended to focus on details, sorry if that didn’t come across well. And I should add that I left art school with a deep hatred of “art talk,” that’s certainly not an impression I wish to leave with anyone!

      • Wow, ill-spirited, insecure and spiteful words are so transparent. These images, and their compositions, are clearly well-crafted and conceived.
        Take it as a compliment when someone shows such obvious jealousy. Anyway, I particularly enjoy your use of box arrangements and text. Very unusual. Also, your tones are quite beautiful. Please keep posting.

  2. Wonderful work! I found your descriptions very helpful. I have been trying to perfect the cyanotype process and found your blog as I searched for information. Very beautiful results!

  4. As a budding fellow cyanotypist, after discovering your work and about how you develop your art I couldn’t help myself, I had to comment – Kudos and a big Thank You for sharing your process, which is a lot more than I can say about other “fellow cyanotypists.” Why anyone would knock going digital is beyond me if it works, but then some people pretend their more ingenious than others because they believe old school is the only way to be true to the form or some such rubbish. I think you’ve posted some great work and I look forward to seeing more of it. You’ve given me lots of ideas for my own process and I appreciate it!

    I wouldn’t worry too much about meaningless criticism that offers no direction arising from the insecurities (arrogance?) of others. After all, you can find an art critic behind every camera in the country.

  5. Hi finding your blog is a revelation for me! I have been experimenting with cyanotypes for months now and had no idea about toning them. I was wondering if you have ever managed to cyanotype onto fabirc? And whether this toning process works on other materials such as fabric or wood? Love your work and I am so inspired after reading your blog so thank you!
