Cyanotype Gallery

I've just uploaded a little gallery of the four "too good to throw away but not good enough to sell as a finished item" pictures that resulted from the eleven canotype prints I've made as of this writing (the others were recycled).

Astute readers will notice that I've used my normal template, which has shopping cart buttons. Do feel free to buy them - even though they're not there yet as a print I think they have a certain handmade, rustic charm and as a collectable they're exactly the kind of thing I like and maybe other people feel the same way. So I'd rather they find a good home, and they're priced accordingly. The really polished ones will obviously be much more.

If anybody buys them I'll put a "sold" watermark on the gallery so people can still see the progression. If by some weird chance two people "buy" the same item before I have a chance to update the item I'll refund the money of the second person, sorry, these are one of a kind by their very nature.

Now, I'm only linking to that gallery from the blog because I want people to know what they're getting, so if you haven't been paying attention - listen up. These are my initial experiments from the first days of trying to produce cyanotypes, a historical printing method dating back to 1842. They have "issues", may have pencil marks or notes on them, what you see is what you get. If you want something unique and to help pay for this exploration that's wonderful. If you want something polished, please wait!

Oh, and they are signed next to the writing below them (date and number) just not in the gallery version.

Hallo my name is Philip van Niekerk. I study photography at The Tshwane University of Technology in South Africa. I looked at your San Francisco Nudes Exhibit and it's really stunning!

I have just started planning a cyonotype exhibition on black and white African landscapes.

I havent done Cyanotypes in the past but I hope it'll go well!

Anayway, VERY NICE WORK!!!!!
