Hello friend,

My name is David Heger and I'm a guy who makes special photos with a special method. I could easily print them like everyone else, but I'm an enthusiast of old photographic processes, so I chose this 100-year-old technique – it is complicated, long, but extremely beautiful.

I just have to enjoy it, and I think this must be reflected in my work.

I offer photo series made by hand, with love and enthusiasm for classic photographic craftsmanship.


What I offer?

Decorative photography of botanical prints.
Made by hand with special care.

ECO friendly:

  • 100 year old Cyanotype method
  • No toxic waste is produced during photo production
  • UV Exposure
  • The developing substance is pure water
  • Toned with natural coloring (coffee, tea, wine, herbs).
  • Thanks to partially manual process each photo is original

The secret of iron:

The base of the photography pigmentation is iron, which changes from trivalent to divalent during the process of developing photography. It is the iron which ensures the long life of each photo. I guarantee the first 100 years :)
More about the cyanotype method here. The Cyanotype Process The cyanotype process was one of the first non-silver technologies used to create photographic images. Originated in the 1840's, it was not utilized in mainstream photography and was adopted as a copying technique, becoming known by the term "blueprint", with its blue background reproductions of large architectural and mechanical drawings. To begin the process, two solutions are prepared for the two-part sensitizing process. Material sensitized with the solution is then printed by ultraviolet light. Variations of the original formula involve different ratios of the following chemicals: (1) Potassium ferricyanide and (2) Ferric ammonium citrate(green). Too much potassium ferricyanide in the solution will lower printing speed; too little may cause the blue color to bleed into the lighter areas. Basically equal volumes of the two solutions are used. Below are several more commonly used cyanotype recipes. The chemical names are linked to prices, information, and online ordering. Use appropriate safety measures throughout the process. Solutions may be stored for several months in amber glass bottles.

Photographic edition - BOTANIC

In the pilot five-piece edition, I offer photographs of botanical prints which are associated with aroma and taste. Noble and cultural plants which are used in the kitchen.

"I chose Botanic for its unusual approach to photo processing technology, which makes the photo look original and permanent at the same time. We love nature and that's why we decided to get the whole series of photos."
