GA goes hands-on with photography ; Date:
As part of MOCA GA’s
current exhibition, “Accelerating Sequence: Artists Observe
Time and Aging,” exhibiting artist Lloyd Godman from New Zealand
ran a free photogram workshop at the Midtown gallery space on Wednesday.
Photograms are camera-less
photographs that are created by laying objects on photographic paper
and exposing them to light, forming a unique negative image that
resembles an X-ray once developed. Used by Fox Talbot at the inception
of the medium around 1838, then reinvented in 1919 by Man Ray and
the surrealists as well as Maholy Nagy and the Bauhaus, the photogram
recently has undergone a contemporary revival.
