Part A – Repose in Blue – is a set of 8 small-scale Cyanotypes that sit in the windowsill of 1224 West Loyola Avenue. These images are being exposed for the initial 28 days of the exhibition, December 23, 2018 to January 19, 2019. Part B of the exhibition will have the 8 Cyanotype images displayed in their final outcome, alongside three long duration photograms in large wooden floor boxes, exposing onto 40×50 inch paper for 28 days, from January 20 to February 16, 2019.
