What Is A Cyanotype?

Cyanotypes are one of the oldest photographic printing processes that produce distinctive cyan-blue prints. 

They are created using a slow-reacting printing formulation that is sensitive to ultraviolet light, when these blue prints emerged, they were traditionally used for the affordable and versatile reproduction of the technical drawings of engineers and architects, for which the term blueprint is still used.

These monochromatic prints result from exposure to ultraviolet light, soon after the discovery of cyanotypes, photographers adopted this process and transformed it into the art form we know it as today.
