Traditional Cyanotypes on Watercolor Paper

In our Special Topics Photography class, we created traditional cyanotypes. This is a non-silver technique dating back to Sir John Herschel in 1842 in which the image is exposed to UV light to create the final photograph. Some are straight prints, while others are toned to varying degrees. As with some of our previous projects, we shot digitally and then printed digital negatives for contact printing. I think the results speak for themselves.
