Shadow Catchers

I am really excited about the Shadow Catchers Exhibition at the V&A from 13 October 2010 – 20 February 2011.

At Lacock Abbey in Wiltshire, England, Floris Neusüss reveals his preparations to make a picture without a camera – a ‘photogram’ – of the window that formed the subject of William Henry Fox Talbot’s first photographic negative, made there in 1835. In the Abbey’s grounds Neusüss also demonstrates the creation of ‘cyanotype’ photograms using fern leaves, recreating the methods of the very first photographs.
