Description this is a cameraless photograph made from an ironwork rubbing. this is a cyanotype like some of the other images i have uploaded here over the years, it is made by light sensitive emulsion i coat on paper, it iron based, unlike black and white film and paper, which is silver based. this isn't a photogram, i didn't place objects on the light sensitive paper and make an image from the light the things might have blocked, but instead i made a rubbing, and converted it into a paper negative ... and contact printed the paper negative to make the cyanotype. i lightly bleached the resulting blue print ( cyanotype ) was inverted and painted it in photoshop ( this is a negative ) the original prints will be colored with watercolors and crayon,it is part of an ongoing series.
John Nanian, Warwick, RI Member Since November 2007 Artist Statement thanks for visiting my imagekind gallery. i am a freelance photographer, but when I am not on assignment i photograph the world around me. sometimes i travel distances, but most of the time i am photographing local things. i am not far from the coast, im not far from providence and i can always find something nearby to photograph. i sometimes make photographic emulsion from scratch, sometimes i use storebought paper and film, sometimes i make photographs using the sun. i use a digital camera too, and from time to time i will make a emulsion based photograph using a digital file. i also make film and paper developer our of coffee. most of the coffee developer i use is from sumatra coffee beans i roast myself. i helped write the caffenol-cookbook, and i was featured in an interview on emulsive.com. i experiment a lot as you might have guessed. thanks again for the visit.
