Nick Vesey's Cyanotype Prints


 I recently came across  a series of wonderful Cyanotype prints by Nick Vasey. Well known for his stunning x-ray imagery, these recent images of seaweed  have translated beautifully into this alternative printing process. They are a nice hark back to Ann Atkins Cyanotype photograms of  algae  printed over 150 years ago, which can be viewed at the V&A museum in London.

Nick is using the updated version of the Cyanotype process created by Mike Ware, to learn more visit his site at http://www.mikeware.co.uk

Regular blog viewers will know that this is my favoured version of the process as it produces to my eyes a more pleasing blue tone.  They were printed on Herschel, a paper also designed by Mike which works well with many alternative processes to find out more click here


Nick is quite an incredible imagemaker you can see more of his work at  http://www.nickveasey.com/
