Flowers in Blue




There's a gallery/bookshop in Portland called Ampersand who specialise in "vintage printed and visiaul material". It's a great idea. They curate regular shows of often quite specialist and fascinating vintage material. This recent show is an exhibition of cyanotype photographs of flowers by an anonymous photographer in about 1900.


It's easy to develop (no pun indtended) a softspot for cyanotype images, it's one of those messy, hands-on kinds of processes that just about anyone can have a go at. These images are something of a cut above the ordinary however, a very unusual find and a beautiful one.
