“Las Floras” Photograms by Cayetano N.

Photograms are a way to make a photographic image without a camera. They are created in the darkroom, using light sensitive paper, an enlarger and objects of the students' choosing. It is another early assignment and helps the students to understand how the light affects the paper. Cayetano went further with this, and cut his images quite small, and boiled them with coffee to give them an old, leathery look and feel, then he re-assembled them with an adhesive backing. They are quite lovely to touch and look at.
