Cyanography is sometimes defined as photographic painting, it is an exact technical description… but this expression is used for a wide variety of works and processes.
Gerhard Richter, for example, offers under this label both his paintings from the 1960s made from photographs and his photographs on which he has been painting since 1986.
While waiting for cyanography to become familiar and the term understood, I often define it as cyanide salt painting, it arouses curiosity and allows me to make the link with silver photography… and its silver salts.
To continue on the terms in CYANO the material used to paint and obtain a photosensitive surface is in fact a chemical emulsion with ferricyanide salts, I explain my recipe in a “technical” article and call it cyanotype ink.
As for my job, I use a generic expression, plastic artist in reference to the plastic arts, both painting and photography, on 2 or 3 dimensions support, with the possibility of making performances, improvised compositions with the public.
My niece loves to say that I am a cyanographer , I admire this simplicity.
