Discussion in 'The Darkroom' started by holderbeam, Jan 6, 2010.
Havent done some for quite a while so decided to experiment aain
Place objects on top of photo sensitive paper. Expose to light. Develop,stop,fix,wash,dry. Finished photogram.
The earliest photgraphs were actually photograms, which pre-date what we now consider "photography"
Photogram Images in the 1800s - Hippolyte Bayard, Schultze, Talbot, Anna Atkins, Sir John Herschel, Anne Dixon, Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen, Joseph Nicephere Niepce
Some famous photogram practitioners were Man-Ray, Laslo Moholy-Nagy, Christian Schad and a few others. If you look at a large expanse of Man Ray's work you will see a few of the quintessential photograms...some are quite well-known. I used to enjoy making photograms. It is a super-fun way to introduce children to darkroom work--it's really,really easy to do!
the first two look like chemcial painting was added to the mix
Man Ray lives!
I remember doing those back in the day. Makes me want to do some more.
Those are very good and interesting. I had no idea you could do this!
We just did these in our B&W class. I loved them. I'm going to be making some more.
I have to say simply are great!!! quite new and good art indeed... go for it and show us more results...
Wow they are really good I had a go at doing these with some students(yr7)
