Cyanotype on Hahnemuhle Platinum Rag 300gsm.

The print is 20 cm x 29 cm. It is not mounted or framed.

It was made by arranging layers of maple leaves between sheets of glass on top of paper coated with a photosensitive emulsion. This was then exposed to sunlight before being washed to reveal the final image.

Cyanotypes are archival, meaning they will last for a really long time, but best displayed out of direct sunlight. If they do begin to fade over the years, you can place them in the dark for a week or two and, like magic, they will regain their full colour. In a way they are a living memory of what the sun saw in a given moment in time!
