Black and Blue - The Memory Shadow

Was fortunate enough to be featured in the faculty exhibition Artists for All Ages. Though, was more excited to try something new.  A triptych of Silver Gelatin Fiber prints with Cyanotyped backs.  

(they are difficult to photograph)

It's really great because depending on the light they look like normal photographs but when the sun is hitting them just right you see the ghost image.The memory shadow.  Big thanks to MCAD for figuring out how to hang them so cleanly and uniquely.

It came about thanks to a serendipitous moment while I was reading the book one morning.  The sun illuminated the Anna Atkins print on the inside cover and projected it on the front...and it was beautiful.
