Cyanotype and rainfalls on paper
152 x 102 cm
The cyanotype (also called the blueprint) is an early photographic process that produces a Prussian blue photograph. The blue colour is developed in sunlight and fixed in water.
In this series of works I treated large sheets of paper with cyanotype in a darkroom and then exposed them during rainfalls. The photographs were exposed for 1 hour each, during different rainfalls in Malmö. The colour of each photograph is determined by the intensity of the rainfall. The photographs are unfixed and so they exist as a kind of open-ended photography, still changing colour when in contact with UV light.
