Whilst stuck on Assignment Three I have been musing over, researching and doing some work towards a longer term project that may well take a great deal of time (and energy) beyond EYV.
I have been taken with the idea of producing cyanotypes for quite some time and have been researching into the methods and technical details of what is required. I have found a great deal of useful information online and have sourced a rather excellent book:
Experimental Photography – A Handbook Of Techniques
Thames & Hudson
This book covers the chemistry and techniques of most early sensitizing and development methods including Cyanotypes.
My idea for this project centres around:
- Self Harm
Blue being a colour strongly associated with the above, I thought that Cyanotypes would be a good medium to reinforce my project theme. These items could include but are not limited to the following:
- Razor Blades
- Train Tracks
- High Point
- Car Exhaust
