Sir John Herschel discovered the cyanotype process for making photographs. His hair is out of control… I Photoshopped out all his hair from an old portrait and made a cyanotype on special Asian paper that turns black when wet. The final product is a fun parlor game where you get to “paint” in Herschel’s crazy hair, let it fade away, and paint it again.
