I was working in the darkroom on some prints for an assignment, and suddenly thought of Man Rays photograms. I had done photograms before so knew how to. I was just messing around in the following images, they have been scanned in so sorry for the quality. They look much better as originals because the paper is shiny, and this really shows the black and white contrast.
I love photograms, and am hoping to do loads more of them! Maybe using different objects to get new effects. I will try using see-thru objects, and different materials to see what happens. I will experiment changing the darkroom paper too, glossy and matt.
An example of Man Ray’s work, I was influenced by his photograms for my own.
