Experimental Photography

A Handbook of Techniques


The first book to tap into the growing audience for alternative and analogue photography in its many highly creative forms


ISBN: 9780500544372 Category:


Experimental Photography profiles and gives step-by-step instructions for nearly 40 processes. They include cameraless techniques such as photograms and camera obscura; pinhole, toy and hand-built cameras; camera hacking; manipulating negatives and printing processes; and post-printing treatments such as mordancage and bleaching. All are demonstrated via specially commissioned photoshoots, and accompanied by illustrated interviews with practising photographers. This is an unprecedented sourcebook of practical inspiration that celebrates the work of the exceptional artists, hackers and artisans who are pushing the boundaries of how we conceive photography.
