Work in progress. Series of cyanotypes, 2022.

A project that uses the cyanotype process to explore the meeting point of land, water and light.

Inspired by my walks on the beach and the patterns formed by the clay that trickles down from the cliffs onto the beach and towards the sea. Using this very same clay, I experiment to create my own patterns on cyanotype coated paper that is then left to expose over a period of time. The resulting prints will form the basis for a series of images that take inspiration from and in some cases borrow from satellite and topographical images and will be put together to make up a disjointed map of unrecognisable terrain. This work reflects on the processes that shape and affect landforms and considers the changes to an area of land over time, particularly in the context of climate change and coastal erosion.
