shadow catchers v&a

I recently came across the V&A website and saw that they are currently showing an exhibition of Artists that are Photographers but do not use cameras; Camera-less photography.

The show is called Shadow Catchers: Camera-less Photography and it includes the work of Floris Neususs, Adam Fuss, Pierre Cordier, Susan Derges and Gary Fabien Miller.

Theres also a book that accompanies the exhibition which looks beautiful. 

The website has videos of each artists showing you their process of camera-less photography, it is actually really interesting if your interested in different processes of working with images and the outcome of all of their work is breathtaking.

I'm gutted that I wont be able to go see it as it is in London and I'm not going there until May, it is being shown from 13th October 2010 - 20th February 2011, so if you live in London or are planning a visit I'd recommend going to see it!

The image below is one of my favourites from the artist Floris Neususs, it is a full size whole body photogram.

I went to see this and it's brilliant so it is a shame you won't be able to go. You can read about it here though;

Woah, thanks for the info. I didn't know about this exhibition. Sounds amazing and I love the photo by Floris Nesuss.
