Transcript of Nature & the Photogram

Nature Photography
& the Photogram Nature Photography Refers to a wide range of photography taken outdoors and devoted to displaying natural elements such as landscapes, wildlife, plants, and close-ups of natural scenes & textures.
Tends to put a stronger emphasis on the aesthetic value of the photo than other photography genres, such as fine art and photojournalism
Common issues involve the potential of stress or harm to wildlife, the potential of photographers overrunning and destroying natural areas Photograms A form of contact printing by placing objects on a piece of light sensitive material & exposing it to light
Some of the first photographs are considered photograms
Called "cameraless photography"
Areas of the paper that have NOT been exposed to light appear white; those exposed through transparent or semi-transparent objects appear gray; which can give a three-dimensional look
Photograms were used as a way for botanists to record outdoor items; which therefore became a form of nature photography
Grew popularity in the 1920's
Popular artists who used the photogram technique include, Man Ray, William Henry Fox Talbot, Anna Atkins, and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, among more contemporary artists.
