8 Oct


This is a cyanotype , an archaic form of photography, that I did a while back. It started out as a digital photograph of a local Swansea nightclub, Sin City. I cropped, turned it black and white and printed it onto an acetate which then became the negative for the cyanotype.  I have entered this image into ‘A Book About Death Wales‘, which opens at the Royal Cambrian Academy in North Wales on October the 18th. This image sprung to mind as soon as I considered entering ABAD. Why Sin? I think it must hark back to my early childhood, when I was taken to many Baptist meetings and I vividly remember old red faced preachers (always male) screaming, “You will die and burn in hell, you sinners!!!!” Put me off religion for life.

    OMG what an terrible experience with those preachers. But the cyanotype is gorgeous. I love all of that image.The colour the graphic factor and the rough underground. Have a lovely day!

      Thank you. It’s a great process, but rather poisonous. We’re having severe storms. Very exciting and heading East. Get your waterproof clothes ready 😀
