This series poetically recycles ephemera into photographs, demonstrating my appreciation of ephemera and my desire to extend its temporality. The ephemera was collected in my travels across Japan. I printed cyanotypes over the pieces to renew their purpose. Cyanotypes are a historically used photography process involving the application of chemicals to a material before its exposure in sunlight underneath a negative image printed on acetate.
This series consists of an album cover for Daughter’s album ‘If You Leave’ and a calendar inspired by the album.
