Beyond the Blue
from Don’t Take Pictures


“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.  This process is now in revival & contemporary photographers are embracing the blue hues, as well as experimenting with toning techniques for a moody, otherworldly aesthetic . . . [DTP] seeks contemporary cyanotypes that go beyond the blue.” –from
