Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

There is a Welsh phrase “Dod yn ôl at fy nghoed” that means “to return to a balanced state of mind”, it literally translates as; “I return to my trees”. This really resonated with me – being connected to nature is as essential to me as breathing.

 I not only fell in love with the rich sumptuous blue that this historical and non-toxic process is named after, but also its alchemical feel. For me, the cyanotype embodies an other-worldliness, of being suspended in time and space and yet grounded at the same time. This process has facilitated an intrinsic connection between myself and my environment.
