Legacy Prints and Paper by Sarah Ann Austin

This image is of my favorite sheet of paper-also one of the first I’ve ever made. 1789 sheets pulled later I’m still in love… I decided to coat this sheet in my cyanotype formula and then exposed one of the most cherished garden plants, the fern. Each year my fern grows and reminds me of the trauma I’ve overcome and the strength within my newly formed roots.

Resilience is embedded within me.
