Jouer Contre Les Appareils

Publication date: 
Collection Argentique |Éditions Photosynthèses

What is experimental photography? Experimental photographers do not abide by the standard rules of photography, they play against the photographic apparatus. Some photograph without a lens (pinhole) or without a camera (photograms). Others play with light, time, chemical development, or printing. And some erase the author-photographer, or use him differently in the process. Contemporary experimental photography is not a school, nor a movement, but simply a current, a moment between the decline of traditional documentary photography and the rise of digital photography.

Keywords: apparatus; camera obscura; experimental photography; flusser, vilém; photograms; pinhole
