A historian of photography and its early processes, Tom Fels makes large-format cyanotypes in the footsteps of those produced in 1843 by Anna Atkins for her historic publication, Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions. Produced using only light and sensitised paper, the magnetic blue of the cyanotype process traces in silhouette the subject of this image, a tree in his back garden, leaving an overall abstract impression. Made directly, without camera or intermediary negative, works such as this triptych are unique.
