    How?

    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!
