Cyanotypes by Julie Reed

Cyanotype printing is an alternative photography process that uses UV light (sunlight) to expose an image on photosensitive materials. The traditional cyanotype process yields beautiful deep indigo colors. In many of my prints, the process will be altered as I experiment. This diversion in the process yield results that can shift the intensity of the indigo or will alter the indigo colors to get varied shades of blue, green, sometimes even yellow creeps in.
