Recently I had a display of theatre photographs from 30 years (1979-2009) – basically photos taken on b&w and color negative film (and some digital shots) and shown as inkjet prints at a gallery. In the show there were a few prints that I made with alternative techniques, namely some pigmented Vandyke browns and a cyanotype.

The set of the three pictures below is from The Bourgeois Gentleman by Molière.


Monsieur Jourdain, a bourgeois. Pigment toned Vandyke brown print on COT320 paper.


Madame Jourdain, his wife. Pigment toned Vandyke brown print on COT320 paper.


The Music Master. Pigment toned Vandyke brown print on COT320 paper.

The picture below is a cyanotype print – originally made for the poster for The Birthday Party by Harold Pinter.
