Beachcomber Lumens and Cyanolumens
A new fascination which excites my curious and creative mind. Cameraless photography. Sunlight and salt water. I place my beachcombing treasures on photographic paper and let them sit in the sun. Lumen printing. After exposure the images bathe in seawater in the dark until they are fixed. It is a kind of alchemy. Magical. A mixture of art and science, process and serendipity. Beautiful, ethereal images capture a moment in time. I am entranced!
And with the addition of cyanotype chemistry, the magical blues and greens of rockpools appear before my eyes.
