In Search of Cygnus

In Search of Cygnus is a continuation of the Cygnus constellation theme. I have been documenting all the discarded Swan cigarette filter packaging I have come across in my daily life, by photographing them in situ and making a note of where I saw them and when. This is an ongoing project, and here is one outcome, where I have printed many of them out as cyanotypes and mounted them together pinned to foam board.

Each cyanotype is approximately 9 x 12 cms, mounted on a piece of 13 x 18cm paper, which in turn are mounted on a piece of foam board 84 x 60 cms

I also turned some into ‘clusters’, mounting photos from the same areas together on one piece of paper. So far I have Peckham, New Cross, Deptford and Aldgate clusters.
