An extra large (22"x30" or bigger) cyanotype print made on location at one of the Underground Railroad Sites in Will County. Professionally framed and gallery ready using all archival materials. Prints this size are technically very challenging to make, especially on site. The resulting print will be more abstract than the others. The image will be based largely on shadows from the space (edges of buildings, trees...etc.) I made prints like these in my Texas Hill Country series. They are beautiful and mysterious. Also, you will be listed as a project benefactor at any future gallery exhibition of the project.Plus the rewards listed at the CONTRIBUTOR level.
