Shadow Catchers: Camera-less Photography @ Victoria & Albert Museum

最近始まった、ビクトリア&アルバート博物館の「 Shadow Catchers: Camera-less Photography」展(10月13日〜2011年2月20日)は、5人の現代アーティスト(Floris NeusüssPierre CordierSusan DergesGarry Fabian MillerAdam Fuss)が、カメラを使わずに作り出した写真作品を集めた、ユニークな展覧会。


V&A’s new exhibition “Shadow Catchers: Camera-less Photography” (October 13 – February 20, 2011)  is an unique show presenting the work of five contemporary artists; Floris Neusüss, Pierre Cordier, Susan Derges, Garry Fabian Miller and Adam Fuss, who work without a camera.

The artists create images on photographic paper by casting shadow and manipulating light, or by chemically treating the surface of the paper. Camera-less photographs can be made using a variety of techniques, the most common of which are the Photogram, the Luminogram and the Chemigram, and sometimes these methods are used in combination.

In compare to photographs taken by a camera, documenting reality, camera-less photographs are more enigmatic and somehow dreamlike. “Shadow Catchers” is in small scale, but fascinating and captivating.
