Cyanotype and rainfalls on paper
76 x 56 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 sheets of paper with cyanotype in a darkroom and then exposed them during rainfalls. The photographs were exposed for 20 minutes each, during different rainfalls in Copenhagen, Malmö and Stockholm. The colour of each photograph is determined by the intensity of the rainfall.
