invited guest: Alicia Estefania

Miami Car

I am glad to show some fine cyanotypes by the Spanish photographer
Alicia Estefania. This is her introduction to the pictures and the technique:

CIANOTIPO. Proceso fotografico muy antiguo que consiste en impregnar
una superficie cualquiera con una emulsion sensible a la luz. Con la
inestimable ayuda del sol, que funciona como ampliadora, va apareciendo ,
como por arte de magia, la imagen azul, siempre azul.

With the precious help from the sun, functioning like an amplifier
the blue picture, always blue...appears like the art of magic.

It´s like poetry. Many thanks to you Alicia for sharing these pictures.

Well-known cities with huge buildings and intense traffic.
I experience the fascinating contrast between the subjects - big cities and your special technique. I like it very much and I got inspiration. Thank you!
