A photo-gram is a photographic image (without a camera) by placing objects directly onto the surface of a photo-sensitive material such as photographic paper and then exposing it to light. the result is a silhouetted image varying in darkness based on the transparency of the objects used, with ares that have not received light appearing light and those that have appearing dark, according to the laws of photo-sensitivity. The image obtain is hence a negative and the effect is often quite similar to an X-ray.
this is an small introduction to the works which I did today in a workshop put up by Maria kapajeva, 3rd year student of UCA (UK).
I joined this workshop with few other Nid students.
We handled every thing ourselves from exposing to drying. It was an amazing experience. When the exposed white paper goes into developer and one can actually see the print is coming out.
We started from the very basic of making a gray scale for our own understanding of machine as well as light.
After that we sort of played with light and created some or other stuff.
and as a end product we have to make a composition depicting ‘our selves’.
