Cyanotype Photograms

At an estate sale at the home of an obstetrician, I encountered an array of specula most of us have never seen. Displayed as merchandise and completely out of context, these medical instruments produced a palpable response from the women at the sale. I bought ten. I should have bought them all. Using these objects to create imagery, I was inspired by Anna Atkins and Man Ray. And so I work with a combination of precise placement and chance. The result is a photographic Rorschach "inkblot," both beautiful and suggestive.
