Merchant's Room : Kit Martin “Lightwave”

Kit Martin has a background in medical and forensic photography and has a particular interest in the detail, texture, fragility and beauty of nature. She makes cyanotype prints from objects and negatives and has recently been experimenting with the argyrotype process, lumens and photograms. We’re delighted to have Kit’s work on display in our Merchant’s Room for the month of September.

Most of the prints in this exhibition have been made at the shoreline in and around St Monans, The cyanotype prints are made by coating paper in the studio, then taking it to the beach and having the waves, sand and sometimes seaweed make the image. Each print is therefore unique and captures a snapshot of a few minutes at the shoreline. The argyrotype prints of seaweeds were made back at the studio, using seaweeds collected at the beach.
