Every purchase includes, at season's end, our beautiful large format Journal of all 52 photographs and the story of each, by the photographer.

DETAILS:

The work is made using scans of parts my body that I made on a home scanner. (Those scans were part of an ongoing endeavor to document my entire body in sections, using the photographic process of the scanner as a kind of diary of the outlines and boundaries of my body.) Those images were then enlarged and printed onto transparencies to create very large format negatives. I then used the traditional method of cyanotype – a set of specific chemicals and the power of the UV rays of the sun, to expose those negatives in a variety of compositions onto large swaths of canvas in my own backyard (on a sunny day!) in Brooklyn, New York. A few auxiliary object that happen to be around made their way into this body of work: twigs and leaves, string from the laundry line I was using to hang the exposed  cyanotypes, cut out stencils I had used for testing, etc. The finished images became objects that documented the history of their creation.
