Cyanotype is, as you may have already guessed it, a photographic printing process that results in a cyan-blue print. It's really quite easy to do them yourself at home as well. Read on to see what this process is all about!
This process involves two chemicals as well as a cyanotype photographic paper. The two chemicals that you would be using (assuming that you are experimenting at home) are ammonium iron(III) citrate and potassium ferricyanide. It does not require any development or fixing. The only thing you would be busy with is “washing”.
Check out the video below to see how easy it is to turn your developed negatives into awesome works of art!

Read on to find out more about our featured photographer – from her beginnings in analogue photography to The Poetic Photography Collection – as well as see a selection of her work that she has personally collated!
Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
