Grasses is from a series of original cyanolumen prints by Somerset artist Anjalika Baier.
Anjalika experiments with cameraless photography techniques, preferring to work intuitively and never quite knowing the final outcome.
The cyanolumen process is a combination of cyanotype and lumen printmaking. Expired photographic paper is coated with light sensitive cyanotype chemicals prior to adding the subject and exposing to the sun.
In this series, Anjalika adopts weeds as her subject matter. Humans have seen weeds as a problem since the dawn of agriculture, but weeds also have strong ecological value. Anjalika champions the humble weed, highlighting both their importance and their beauty.
Mounted in a 10" x 12" white mount.
