Cyanotypes are direct shadows of things placed on sensitized paper and then exposed to the sun. Unmediated by the camera there is a sensuality and mystery in the process. Recently I have been making prints of vintage lingerie from a collection loaned to me by a friend. I've been struck by how these garments embody delicacy, seduction and beauty while at the same time represent physical discomfort and damaging female stereotypes.
