Cameraless PhotographyMartin Barnes
Visually compelling, Cameraless Photography is an outstanding introductory overview of the major creative, cameraless processes running throughout the history of photography – including photograms, chemigrams, luminograms, dye destruction prints and more – illustrated by the cameraless work of some of photography’s greatest names.
More than 125 photographs are supported by extended commentaries and a concise introduction. The book begins with the early photographic experiments of artists such as Anna Atkins in the 19th century through the avant-garde photograms of modernists such as Man Ray, to the work of contemporary artists, such as Susan Derges, nearly two centuries later.
