CYANOTYPE: 19th century photographic art

Brenda Tweel is a cameraless photographer who explores cyanotype's technical, conceptual and visual processes. Her focus on process over product is rooted in her Architectural thesis, for which she received the Royal Architectural Institute Medal.

Tweel's work often deals in the play of opposites: shadow and light, movement and stillness, presence and absence, solid and void.  By liberating objects from their scale and context, she encourages the viewer to contemplate the essence of form.  She creates a feeling of surreal detachment, a sense of disengagement from time and the physical world.
