Cyanotypes are created by treating paper with light-sensitive iron salts. This paper can then be exposed to the sun and its ultraviolet light to create an image.
~Greta Bahnemann

These are really cool. Love the Indigo XII...beautiful and haunting. The one of the cassette looks like an x-ray, doesn't it?
