Russell Moreton Found Objects : Archaeological Photogram/Layered Landscapes


When you make photograms, without the use of a camera, you can indeed call that abstract photography, as the lens and the corresponding registration medium are lacking. No longer do you have pictures of reality or objects; you only have their shadows. It is a bit like Plato’s cave, where one could only imagine reality; the objects themselves were not visible.
—Thomas Ruff



Layered Landscape

"Thus we cover the universe with drawings we have lived. These need only to be tonalized on the mode of our inner space."

Gaston Bachelard.
The Poetics of Space.
