Introducing Rinne Allen a photographer who draws with the sun.

I came across Rinne's work when I dropped in to see what the wonderful folks at hable construction (at 117 perry street, nyc) were making with their printed fabrics this season.

Selliginella, 8x10", cyanotype, $168

These have all been made using a "pre-camera-era" photographic process that involves treating watercolor paper with light-sensitive pigments, laying a specimen on the treated paper and then exposing it to the sunshine until a 'ghost' image is revealed.

Two Allium, 8x10", kallitype, private collection

The blue ones are cyanotypes, and the deep brown and gray ones are closer to a kalliptype. I love how this process allows her to brush the light-sensitive emulsion onto the paper creating its own shape with soft, brush-stroke edges. Each light-drawing is unique, and all all have been created with the sunshine in her backyard garden in Athens, Georgia.

Wood Fern, 9x12", kallitype, $188

She has made prints/drawings as small as 2x3" and as large as 2'x3' -- and is angling on trying some as large as 6 ft tall soon. For that endeavor, I send her wishes for a brilliant sunny day -- no clouds, no wind! Prices range from $58-$975 (on up) -- options for almost any art budget.
