photo of Shelter by Don Brewer

Don Brewer says, Shelter has stuck in my mind, I went back twice to see the cyanotypes and experience the deep blue. The color stirs thoughts of science, spirituality, and inspiration. The compositions add layers of memes and memories to the blissful peace of cyan blue.
