Hybrid: “[thread, cotton, and cyanotype on cut paper]” by Isabel Ries Neal

Note: [thread, cotton, and cyanotype on cut paper] features text laser-cut through watercolor paper. Some in the series are improvisationally machine-sewn; one includes hand-dyed cotton. The blue is cyanotype, with images solar-printed from my grandmother’s Kodak negatives.
