John Shimon, Untitled, cyanotype, 2021

Front cover

The first cyanotype accordion for this blog! This work was sent to me by my friend John Shimon, an offbeat and well established Wisconsin photographer based in Appleton. Accompanying the accordion was a postcard with a note stating, "An experiment with the accordion form!" This monochromatic work is a delight with a gestural subtext that imbues the work with both depth and movement. Don't stop there John, I want to see more!!

8 pages, individually 7" x 5", and when fully opened 3ft 4".
