Alison Rossiter’s photographs are created without a camera on expired, vintage photo paper. The artist experiments with gelatin silver papers she collects from throughout the 20th century, making controlled marks by pouring or pooling photographic developer directly onto the surface of the paper. Dark forms emerge which often resemble mountainous landscapes or active tornados; other shapes are paired by the artist to create minimalist diptychs. Each batch of gelatin silver paper, such as Eastman Royal Bromide, which expired in 1919, or Nepera- Velox, which expired in 1906, possesses unique qualities, depending on its particular color, surface, condition and age. Utilizing her experience in conserving photographs, she reacts to these variables and manipulates the interaction of paper and developer by hand, paying tribute to the intrinsic qualities of photographic materials and reintroducing unpredictability into a process which is now commonly digitized. – Extract: Reduction – Yossi Milo Gallery

For anyone not familiar with this project here is the text that accompanied the original book release:

::

This book is the result of an online collaboration between 111 international artists and photographers, where by simply utilising the infrastructure of the photo sharing website ‘flickr’ we have managed to communicate, interact and gather together a stunning collection of over 400 abstract and aesthetic photographic works!

For this project I have reorganised a series of virtual online curations toward interconnected progressions of sensual, thought provoking and emotive works. Selected carefully each double-page spread features a self-contained visual duet…these pairings are also integral to the flow of the sequence as a whole. This continuity allows the viewer to visit any page at will and embark on an intriguing journey into a complex and ethereal world of delicate changing moods.

A space involving unexpected movements of colour, shape and form, minimal tonal progressions with gentle transitions from dark to light and warm to cool, subtle textural, linear and conceptual relationships and occasional mysterious figurative apparitions. Ultimately inviting emotional responses via the poetic adventures of the imagination and the senses. (azurebumble)

In the exhibition “Cast” (2008) Dryden Goodwin presented five new series of works – Cradle, Shapeshifter, Casting, Caul and Rock. Each series featured portraits of strangers captured by the artist as he has travelled through London. The title “Cast” suggests a plurality of meanings, all of which have resonances with the work, from casting a line to casting light or shadow, from casting a film role to casting a sculpture, from casting suspicion to casting a spell.

All the works combined drawing with photography in a range of ways. As Goodwin described: “…drawing as touch is central. I find it compelling the idea of a drawn mark being a kind of contact between artist and subject, between one individual and another…drawing is a way of thinking into the photograph…an ambiguous gesture, that can suggest both tenderness and hostility…”

In the series above; “Caul”, Goodwin draws into the photograph using a digital drawing tablet, the artist presses onto its membrane-like surface with a digital stylus, the more pressure he exerts the deeper and more luminous the line he draws. A ‘Caul’ is the name given to a portion of the amniotic sac that can be left over a child’s face at birth. In some cultures, the caul has demonic associations; more usually it is considered sign that the child is safeguarded, even bestowed with special powers. The title resonates with this association, reinforcing the visceral quality of the distinctive red lines that cover the faces of the people in the work, like blood vessels or raw tissue.
