The Morning Glory Collection


Marita Wai

I began life on a remote island in the wild, Pacific Northwest coast of Canada. A place surrounded by the beauty of the natural world. 

I spent the second half of my life in London, England.  It was here, where nature is  harder to find, that I began to seek out this beauty so I could share it with you through my botanical Cyanotypes.   

Botanical X-Rays

These fine art, giclee prints enable you to see into the structure of the plants, like an actual X-Ray which illuminates the skeleton. Each image was made from a photogram of the original leaf or flower; Hosta, Tulip, Iris, and Fuchsia.  

Marita Wai Studio Cyanotype process


A brief history of Cyanotype 

This camera-less photography process was invented in 1842 by Sir John Herschal. He combined Iron salts to create a light sensitive solution. He introduced the process to his friend and neighbour, Anna Atkins. She went on to produce the first ever book illustrated with photography.

This process eventually became a popular to reproduce architectural drawings, blueprints.
