Cyanotypes: handmade limited editions inspired by nature and of the highest gallery quality

ABOUT US: 
We are a studio of two designers specialised in gallery quality cyanotype prints and based between Barcelona and Miami. Among 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 (a.k.a. sun-print) process is one of the oldest in the history of photography, dating back to the 1840's. Cyanotypes were then made famous by Anna Atkins, considered the first female photographer!Inspired by nature, our cyanotypes are made by coating high-quality Italian watercolor paper with a light-sensitive emulsion. We then expose it in direct sunlight for several minutes using a photo negative to get the best image quality. Finally, the print is washed and fixed with water to stop the reaction and prevent fading. What you get is an amazing, royal blue image... with absolutely no ink involved! And since each print is handmade, tones will give gorgeous, subtle variations. The beauty of cyanotypes is that each print is absolutely unique.
