The Means By Which ‘Blueness’ [Be]comes

…zeroooooo time to really write anything today, but wanted to get a few images and excerpts up, so I can come back to think on this later. This blog post title is excerpted from a line in Lindsay Smith’s book, The Politics of Focus: Women, Children and Nineteenth-century Photography, which I happened to come across. The passage is from a section discussing the Prussian blue resulting from the cyanotype process and the full sentence reads, “We have to consider the means by which ‘blueness’ comes to be interpreted as a representational ‘drawback.’

Okay, more later – rough stuff below.
