Meghann Riepenhoff creates her camera-less cyanotypes in collaboration with the landscape and the ocean, at the edges of both. Entitled Littoral Drift, a geologic term describing the action of wind-driven waves transporting sand and gravel, the photographs shown here were made in the Headlands, Marin, California. Riepenhoff exposes her cyanotype prints directly to elements of nature, in this case allowing the ocean water and sand to move over the print itself. She then selectively re-photographs moments in the evolution of the images, generating a series of static records of a transitory process.
