The photographic process for Nostalgia IV was cyanotype and monoprinting on Arches watercolor paper.
I painted cyanotype solution on Arches watercolor paper and exposed tomato plant leaves to the sun.
After the cyanotype dried, I used a gelli plate to create a monoprint of tomato plant leaves on top, using several layers of block printing ink.
