Man Ray photogram I could use the film in my own photograms as they let some light through allowing the photo to be seen

The Age of Collage

Man Ray. Although commonly dubbed as the photogram today, there’s a pleasant science-fiction flavor to Man Ray‘s original coinage, the Rayograph. It’s basically a photograph, although one created without the use of a camera. A Rayograph is created by placing objects directly onto a chemically “sensitized” surface and then exposing them to light

Photogram - Man Ray I like the way the paper curls in this photogram, I want to try this so I will prepare some curled paper ready to photogram

Laszlo Moholy-Nagy

Laszlo Moholy-Nagy Really interesting piece by Laszlo Moholy-Nagi. Looks like early photographic manipulation. Eerie to look at, but fascinating, all the same.

Photographs like paintings. //Sundial: Uta Barth

Uta Barth, challenging the way of photography by not showing the actual objects and not looking directly to them

Uta Barth is a German contemporary artist living and working in LA and her work is quietly breathtaking.

I had these beautiful Uta Barth photos hanging around in my inspiration files, and they feel like fall to me.

The Bauhaus Movement Moholy Nagy

Laszlo moholy nagy, photogram. Light itself becomes a malleable medium for generation design and form.

Yesterday I luckily shot this really big bokeh : an hommage to Moholy-Nagy. These are some of his photograms.

Uta Barth

At first glance, Uta Barth’s photographs may resemble abstract paintings or appear as personal descriptions of her surroundings.
