Photograms are photographs produced without a camera, by laying photographic subjects directly onto the light sensitive medium. These “object-less” photograms were constructed in a makeshift darkroom by stressing photographic paper. A bit of chance was employed when exposing the photographic paper to cigarette lighters, sparklers, heat, sandpaper, bubbles, and other tools before processing it in my bathtub. I wanted to create camera-less images without a reference to a specific object. The results are something you might see in a microscope or a telescope.
