Cyanotypes: unique, handmade, and printed in direct sunlight

ABOUT US: 

Our shop consists of two designers that do absolutely everything from our studio in Barcelona, Spain. Between the two of us we have won several art and design awards, and as a collective we were recently awarded the 2018 FAD Arts Prize for best design product in Barcelona. 

THE PROCESS:

The cyanotype process is one of the oldest in the history of photography, and during this digital revolution that we are experiencing, we feel the need to look back at a craft that is handmade, analogue, and using an all-natural light source: the sun.

Our cyanotypes are made by coating high-quality watercolor paper with a light-sensitive chemical, to then be exposed in direct sunlight for several minutes using a photo negative to get the best image quality. The print is then washed and fixed, to stop the chemical reaction and prevent fading. What you get is an amazing, Prussian Blue image, with absolutely no ink involved.
