On Top of Spectre Mountain - Cyanotypes

Artist Statement:

Spectre Mountain is an independent ecosystem with vast mountain ranges connecting sea, cave systems, and looming icebergs. Humans have not set foot on Spectre Mountain for centuries but the ghostly landscape can be seen on moonlit nights through a powerful enough telescope.

I made these images of Spectre Mountain with the cyanotype process. I exposed paper treated with chemicals to the sun, using drawings, paper, and plants to block the sunlight on set areas.

After moving from New York City, I was compelled to spend time outdoors, alone. That’s when I discovered Spectre Mountain.

Cyanotypes, 8" by 10" made in Portland Oregon and exhibited at Adjacent to Life Gallery New York, NY.
