Photogram on fiber based paper
24 x 18 cm

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.
