Water Women Handmade Cyanotype Book
A handmade Cyanotype book consisting of Visual Water Stories from 50 inspirational Women I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. During isolation, I developed cyanotype blue sun prints from favourite water images chosen by 50 women all over the world in order to create a blue water designed book. The reason behind this was because 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.
The book was created to raise awareness and connect us through the use of 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. This Book was made during the period of lockdown, to find the light in a Global Pandemic and to remember the positive healing affects of our in-water experiences.
