Markus Amm : Photograms

In his Untitled series, Markus Amm revives the technique of the photogram. Pioneered as an art form by Man Ray and Moholy Nagy (the latter of which coined the term “photogram”), the process utilises rudimentary photograph principles: objects are placed on a photosensitive surface, and briefly exposed to light to create an abstracted “x-ray” image, an inverted shadow outline of suggestive form.

Michael Flomen : Photograms

In his large-format, black-and-white photographs, Flomen captivates our optic and draws it toward what is hidden in plain sight, sequestered between darkness and the light. He draws our attention to the liminal spaces that exist between tenses, conditions of matter, and even states of being.

László Moholy-Nagy : Photograms

“László Moholy-Nagy is a world-famous figure of twentieth-century avant-garde art. His visual art and theoretical works, photographs, films, educational activities and photograms – taken without a camera and now synonymous with his name – were of such significance that it is no exaggeration to say that since Moholy-Nagy, we see things differently; since Moholy-Nagy, our thinking about art has been transformed. His innovations over the decades have become so natural, his influence so pervasive, that we now almost have to rediscover him once again.
