Transcript of PHOTOGRAM ASSIGNMENT
in this assignment you will use opaque, transparent and semitransparent objects to create a photogram.
photograms were some of the first photographic images using light to create pictures without a camera
Here are a few examples.......
I paint what cannot be photographed, that which comes from the imagination or from dreams, or from an unconscious drive.
Man Ray was an American artist who spent most of his career in Paris, France during the first half of the 20th century. He was a significant contributor to the Dada and Surrealist movements. He was best known in the art world for his photography, and he was a renowned fashion and portrait photographer. Ray is also noted for his work with photograms, which he called "rayographs" in reference to himself.
In this assignment you will create a photogram using a variety of materials.
Compile your objects into an interesting composition before going into the darkroom.
Composition is the placement or arrangement of visual elements in a work of art. Your composition should "move" the viewers eye around the piece creating visual interest.
Next you will create your photogram in the darkroom using your objects and the enlarger on a piece of photo paper.
You will then print a test strip of your objects, and make a series of 5 x 7 photogram images. You will choose your best image and create a reversal or that image.
You will turn in your test strip, photogram and your photogram reversal to complete this assignment. Your grade will be based on your ability to complete this assignment and demonstrate an understanding of composition and opaque, semi transparent and transparent objects.
Use objects from class and bring in objects from home that are transparent, opaque and semitransparent that will help you create your photogram.
