Blueprinting was invented as a process that allowed rapid and accurate reproduction of documents. This process evolved largely for the use of architecture and industry plans. Blueprints were later replaced by printing machines. This obsolete process is now used for more creative purposes. Through the process of blueprinting, artist Jeff Carson creates these beautiful artworks. He gives a crisp, contemporary feel to this old world style.
"Each piece is slightly different from the last. That's why I love this technique, the tones of blue and exposures vary every time. It's not like other printing processes that seek to replicate the image every time. I create my images with photographs, drawings, paintings, sometimes found objects. This process helps me transform whatever image I use into a unique artwork.” -Jeff Carson
