An inverted image of a flower arrangement and vase

Sophie Tusler Byerley, Flower Revision (2022). Cyanotype and Gum Bichromate on Paper. 20 x 30 in.

Drawing upon archival material and found photographs, my works reflect an expanded notion of photographic production. I combine processes that build upon each other, often layering multiple techniques such as cyanotype and gum bichromate, and alternate my use of analog and digital negatives. In these images, the moment of capture loses its centrality, giving way to layers of decisions concerning paper, sizing, individually chosen pigments, and the tonal range and contrast of analog printing processes.
