Blue, 2017: A series of cyanotype prints of blue objects. Cyanotype is a photographic process that produces a rich cyan-blue tinted image. While experimenting with this process, I began to think about what objects were blue and why, and increasingly came across artificial items that are produced in a rich blue hue: tarps, gloves, moving blankets, tape, recycling bins, dumpsters. Most of the images I used were sourced from industrial supply catalogs, photographed in a plain and austere manner. While experiencing a "blue period" in my own life, and listening to true crime podcasts, I began combining these industrial objects in more "random" compositions, and soon, a darker narrative began to emerge.
