Artist Statement

A recent series of large scale (50 x 70 cm / 20 x 28") cyanotype (and sometimes gum bichromate) portraits which mix contemporary and historic art/photo processes. Rather than work with the finest and highest resolution imagery, here again, I experiment with a low fidelity approach which gives a roughness and edginess to the images.
