Dreaming in blue

Photographer's Name
Rebecca Murray

Cyanotype is an early photographic process of ‘cyan’ or dark blue impressions. Elemental compounds like iron, water and ultraviolet light combine to make an image. Water from the Ferny Creek (near my home), and the Yarra /Birrarung (further into the ranges), Wurundjeri Country, has been embedded. Plant matter, soil and shadows also form part of the process. Microelements from places I know intimately create a macro impression of a landscape drawn only from my imagination.
