Work Print Series The Bay Blueprints

The Bay Blueprints

I began the Bay Blueprints series in 2009 at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE) where I was permitted access to photograph the plant material that is removed from the Garden in the course of its everyday business. From the resulting library of plant imagery I selected parts to assemble into ‘new’ plant forms using digital image manipulation methods combined with the cyanotype printing process. Each print in the series is named after the month of the year when its component parts were selected and photographed.
