SpliceGrams

4x5 Large Format Ilford HP5 Plus 400 BW Film w/ Graflex Crown Graphic Field Camera & Graflex 135mm Optar Lens

____

SpliceGrams are an original method of working I have developed which involves physically cutting multiple negatives and splicing them together in various fashions, both geometrically and conceptually. When printing them in the darkroom, I place a variety of objects on the paper (to make photograms). This combination of styles I have come to call SpliceGrams. Historically photographers such as Oscar Gustav Rejlander and Henry Peach Robinson explored different combinations of negative cutting in the 1880s; while Dadaists including Lazlo Maholy Nagy and Man Ray toyed with the concepts of photograms in the 1920s. The purpose of this work is to stretch the limits of photography as a multi-medium art form. To view the whole series, click here.
