in a world where originality is hard to come by- it's worth stopping to appreciate those who blaze their own trail. artist adam fuss is one of those precious few who go their own way. i discovered his unique photographs at the mfa boston a few years ago and thought it was high time to celebrate his work.
working in the rather untouched medium of cibachrome photograms, (and the laborious process of full-plate daguerreotypes) fuss' work is breathtakingly different. it's hard to describe the physical and emotional reactions i felt when seeing his work in person- the eery, etherial effect of the silver and gelatin photograms is otherworldly. you can find details on his camera-less (yes, camera-less) process here.
in the meantime, enjoy the prints below and, if you have the means, i highly suggest contacting cheim and read in ny and purchasing an original adam fuss photogram. if i could, i would in a heartbeat. this is attention well deserved- adam fuss is an artist with an amazing talent that deserves to be celebrated. enjoy.
