Columns on Front of the Alamo - Real Handmade Cyanotype PrintKeith Dotson Photography
This is a unique, one-of-a-kind, handmade cyanotype print of an architectural detail photograph of two carved stone pillars and a niche on the front of the Alamo. The paper was hand-coated and sun-printed on high-quality Arches cold-press watercolor paper. It comes with extra paper and the brushed background exposed, just as shown, but this can easily be trimmed off, or covered with a top mat for framing.
- Signed in pencil on the back
- 8 inches wide x 9 7/8 inches tall (photo image area)
- Print only - not matted, mounted, or framed
Cyanotypes are often referred to as an "alternative process," but they are actually an antique historic process. Cyanotypes are a form of contact print, which means they are printed from a negative that is the same size as the final print. The negative is sandwiched against the sensitized paper under glass, and exposed to UV light (traditionally the sun). The exposed paper is then washed in water until fully developed.
