Photograms are a direct exposure on photosensitive material.
In this case color photo paper.
Unlike traditional photography, this process does not require a camera. Models and/or objects are placed directly on the photo paper, which is then exposed with one or more light sources. The exposed paper is subsequently developed in a special laboratory.
There is no delete key, no mass production. Each image is a unique work of art. Photograms are the result of a fusion of photographic skill and creative vision.
What looks so ultra-modern is based on one of the oldest of all photographic techniques. It was first developed in the mid-19th century and, since the early 20th century, artists such as Man Ray, Christian Schade, Lászlo Moholy-Nogy, El Lisitzki, Kurt Schnitters and Raoul Hausmann have created world famous masterpieces with photograms.
The photograms were exposed on Cibachrome reverse material (50/60 cm). The images were then reproduced to illustrate the Group's five divisions in a large format installation in the former OSRAM headquarters.
