I(m)prints

I(m)prints is a series of 1/1 cyanotypes made in a traditional analog darkroom by hand.

Photographs, especially physical prints, tend to create an illusion of holding on to certain places, people and events. But in today’s world obsessed with the image, images are easily discarded. I was drawn to working with cyanotypes because of the immediacy of the process and the texture of paper, which, unlike glossy surface, easily absorbs water and can be treated in a number of ways. By subjecting them to natural elements, I wanted to play with materiality of the medium and vulnerability of photographic memories.
