What is a sunprint?

Sunprinting is a photographic process that uses a photosensitive emulsion which becomes permanent when exposed to UV lighting. Anything that casts a shadow can be used to create an image on the treated surface. Cyanotypes were introduced in the mid 1800s, while Solarfast dye is a relatively new product made by Jacquard. There is way more information on both processes available online, as well as how-to and troubleshooting guides.

Where do you source your images? 

My images are from my personal collection of magazines, books, and other ephemera I’ve collected over the years. I also find imagery from curated public domain archives.

Where do you source your clothing?

Everything I source is second-hand and found at thrift stores and from local vintage sellers.

Can you put my own image on a shirt for me?

It’s important to me I choose the images that I use in order to keep my process personal and true to my own eye. I believe when you buy artwork you’re purchasing a piece of the artist’s vision in addition to their material and skill set. It’s probably much cheaper and easier to find a company that specializes in transferring custom images on a shirt using a different method.

Will you do a custom/replicate other designs you’ve made on my own clothing?
