A handmade cyanotype book consisting of visual water stories from fifty inspirational women I’ve had the pleasure of knowing.
During the first lockdown, I developed cyanotype blue sun prints from favourite water images chosen by fifty women all over the world in order to create a blue water book. The colour blue is considered to be beneficial to the mind and body; it slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect which relates to the subject of my book, water.
Water Women was created to raise awareness and connect us through our water memories. During the period of lockdown, we have learnt to slow down and appreciate the smaller things in life. In a time of isolation, we are now more grateful than ever for our memories and can acknowledge what truly makes us happy. Many of us associate these memories with the subject of water.
I invited these women to share their favourite moments relating to water. These stories have proven that our experiences with water can have a powerful impact on our lives as individuals and together. I created this book at my home during the first lockdown to keep creative and remember the healing benefits of our in-water experiences.
