True Blue: A Cyanotype Venture exhibit

True Blue: A Cyanotype Venture in South West North Dakota, cyanotypes by Sabrina Hornung. On display at the Joachim Museum at the Dickinson Museum Center. Cyanotypes are a Victorian photo process that are essentially what blueprints are made of. Hornung used watercolor paper as a support for these pieces and then embellished a few of the images with watercolor pencil. When this body of work was created she had great hopes that it would travel and generate conversation between multiple generations.
