Photograms

Traditionally, photograms are made by placing objects onto light-sensitive paper and exposing the paper to light. However, this series experiments with folds. Casting shadows of figures within the photographs onto themselves this series simulates the qualities of Photograms. Using graduation of colour, subtle changes and transformation rules of mapping; information in one area of the photograph is used to alter other areas of the photograph and the effects of cameraless photography is produced. The final prints produced are as enigmatic as the original analogue photograms with a hint of the ephemeral and other worldliness.

FINISH: DIASEC mounting –
Diasec is a method of preservation of photographic images. The mounting process uses no glue instead it utilises a special liquid chemical to create adhesion between the three components in the composite. The face of the image adheres chemically to the back of a transparent Plexiglas and the image back to a rigid aluminum sheet. The process ensures the absence of dust particles or air bubbles with no traces of glue. The front face of the plexiglas filters ultraviolet light and avoids discoloration of the image. The final artwork is a guaranteed Museum quality finish with image longevity of over 70 years.
