Primary Reactions


These camera-less photographs are made by letting darkroom chemicals react with light and air and with the silver gelatine layer present in photographic papers.

In this series the photographic paper operates like human skin and records the exposure to light and to a specific environment. The works reflect on the artists' exposure to their working environment over time and celebrate the traces of the image making process as evidence of the individual artist who produces the works of art.

This work has been shown at Revela-T Festival in Spain, Grenze Festival, Italy. Photokina Festival in Germany as well as Brighton Photo Biennial. It has been published in Beneath The Salt photobook by YONA editions, and on Obsolete and Discontinued published by Brovira Press. Some of these prints have been acquired by the Gabriela Cendoya-Bergareche Collection.
