About Cyanotype Prints

The Cyanotype process is a precursor to photography, invented in 1841 by Sir John Herschel. It uses a mixture of two iron compounds (ammonium ferric citrate and potassium ferricyanide) applied to paper. This light-sensitive solution is then exposed to UV light (selectively masked off to create an image) and then washed in water. The oxidisation creates a Prussian blue image on the paper: the origin of the “blueprint”.

A feature of Cyanotype prints is that they are living images which can change over time, depending on their exposure to daylight and oxygen. Whilst they are relatively stable, they can eventually fade, but their unique nature means that they can be brought back to life (darkening any faded blues) by placing the image in a dark environment, open to oxygen (i.e. unframed) for a few days (or longer depending on the level of fading). These artworks should be handled with care: avoid touching the surface of the work, and keep it away from alkaline materials. It is best displayed away from sunlight and should be kept behind glass in a dry environment.
