I experiment with a variety of 19th century photographic processes like gum, platinum/palladium, salted paper and cyanotype printing plus more modern outdated cameras, for example a 25-year old Apple digital device with 0.3 megapixels. I researched the toning of cyanotypes with botanicals and developed a new tricolor cyanotype process. Based on theses findings I authored the book “Cyanotype Toning: Using Botanicals to Tone Blueprints Naturally” in the Routledge series on Contemporary Practices in Alternative Process Photography. In my work I capture the poetry of everyday life and the beauty of nature, often consisting of contrasts and conflicting layers. I have exhibited my work in Switzerland, the USA and China.
