Albert Levy Printig in blue :The Philadelphia Photographer. Cyanotipe. Fotografía en azul, el cianotipo. Albert Levy

 




Printing in blue

A number of inquiries have comes to us laely for the process of printin in blue. We have repeatedly given this process, but it has recently been published more in detail in The Franklin Institute Journal by Mr. David Towsend  and we reprint for his valuable that follows this remarks..

.....Mr. Albert Levy of New York, Mr T.H. McCollin ,of this city, and in fact all dealers, we believe, supply the paper already sensitized, and for experiment, perhaps, that is the best way to get it....






(Architectural Cyanotypes)    (Levy, Albert ).   LES HABITATIONS PRIVÉES EN AMERIQUE/  Constructions Pittoresques De Ville Et De Campagne.      Paris: Eugène Bigot, Libairie de L’Architecture et des Arts Industriel. ,  n.d. ca. 1885
         A rare published French album of original cyanotype prints featuring American residential architecture taken at the end of the 19th century. This work is not to be confused with another, also published by Bigot, with a nearly similar title, HABITATIONS PRIVÉES EN AMERIQUE, but without the subtitle. That work is devoted to townhouses on city streets. Here, most of the houses pictured, one to a plate, are set apart in suburban or rural settings, although a few of the houses pictured are clearly urban homes
.      Folio (39 x 32); (ii) + 36 plates of mounted cyanotype photographs, the photos themselves measuring approximately 20 x 25 cm.

    Cianotipos de arquitectura americana por Albert Levy





Tesis doctoral e print Complutense. Véase Cianotipia pag. 128.

En sus orígenes, la cianotipia consistió en impregnar el papel con sales de hierro para posteriormente ser utilizado en impresión de contacto. Al lavar el papel en agua surgía la imagenen blanco sobre un  fondo azul Prusia

La cianotipia, tambiénconocida como "blueprint" (copia azul), debido a su gransencillezde aplicación, se utilizó para la re producción de planos y fórmulas matemáticas, aunque muy pronto se aplicó en fotografía, concretamente en la realización de fotogramas durante el siglo XIX. 

El cianotipo fue utilizado, alguna vez,  por grandes fotógrafos pero de manera ocasional.
