Thirst comes glistening
LA River, Pacific Ocean, Echo Park Lake & SF Bay Cyanotypes
I continue making photograms with the old-fashioned cyanotype process. I use the measure of the body, making an impression that gets exposed to sunlight and developed in a natural body of water. The body photograms show different silhouette that each body makes cataloging sameness and difference. The shadows echo traces of the invisibility that happens with aging, marginalization and endless classification.
They were made at a site of natural water, the LA River and the Pacific Ocean where they are exposed to the sun, and then developed in a the natural body of water - making the water, the wind, and sunlight integral parts of the work.
