Known as one of the first photographic process, Cyanotype (Sun Prints) utilizes UV sunlight to expose iron based chemicals. This historical photographic process forms the basis of my work. In my recent series I follow the work of Anna Atkins. Atkins was the first photographer to publish a book illustrated with photographic images and was both a scientist and artist. Her work cataloged the sea algae and plant life around her just as I am capturing the beauty and wonder of the flora of Montana.
