more This is an image that is a detail from 17th century Italian sculptor Gian-Lorenzo Bernini's "Bust of Costanza Bonarelli". It is an original cyanotype print, made on heavy and very resistant watercolor paper, in A4 (about 8.5in x 11in) size.
The cyanotype process is one of the oldest in the history of photography, and during this digital revolution that we are experiencing, we feel the need to look back at a craft that is handmade, analogue, and using an all-natural light source: the sun! To give you some background info, our cyanotypes are made by coating high-quality watercolor paper with a light-sensitive chemical, to then be exposed in direct sunlight for several minutes using a photo negative to get the best image quality. The print is then washed and fixed, to stop the chemical reaction and prevent fading. What you get is an amazing, Prussian blue image, with absolutely no ink involved!
