Landscape - Lake Pukaki, Duotone Cyanotype



Landscapes have featured heavily in my photography from the start. Initially, I was driven by capturing “what’s there”. This changed over time to looking for the details that define a sense of place.

When I started printing in alternative processes, the focus shifted yet again. Suddenly, the colour palette, that the process defined, started to inspire the image.

The limits that the duotone cyanotype process brings with it – a colour palette of yellows and blues – impart a certain feeling to the image that moves it from being a photo-realistic rendering of a scene to an interpretative representation more akin a painting for which the painter has chosen an suitable range of tones.
