"Windswept" by Krista McCurdy
Although always a fan of botanical imagery, I found myself wanting to push the imagery a little more. Working with paint and transparencies, I created textures and alternative imagery that added the sense of motion.
Cyanotype printing is an alternative photography process that uses sunlight to expose the image. I developed a way of taking the traditional cyanotype process and altering the process so that instead of a normal blue and white print, I could get varied shades of blue, green, sometimes even yellow creeps in. Instead of the end goal of a very tidy and neat blue and white cyanotype, the end goal is a unique, completely imperfect print.
Fine art prints are printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag, a 100% cotton paper that is of the highest quality and reproduces colors beautifully and vividly, making the final print look almost as though it were an original.
