Adam Fuss: Water

Text by Carter Ratcliff.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Adam Fuss: Water.'

New York–based, British-born photographer Adam Fuss (born 1961) has been exploring the subject of water for more than 30 years, and is perhaps best known for his life-sized photograms of this essential element.

Fuss is inspired by his personal observation of nature and his reinterpretation of the techniques of early photography. In dialogue with photographic pioneers such as William Henry Fox Talbot, Eugène Atget and Anna Atkins, Fuss distills the essence of photography—light interacting with a sensitized surface—to create evocative, startlingly beautiful images of the natural world. Roberta Smith has described Fuss’ style as “breathtaking visual extravagance born of a combination of pure controlled chance and superb control.”

Here, for the first time, is a book dedicated solely to the subject Fuss is most associated with: water. Charting a sophisticated engagement with the interaction of water and light throughout his entire career, Fuss personally selected all the pictures, which appear here in exquisite reproductions. Some of Fuss’ photographs of water are now classics of contemporary photography, such as the swimming snakes, the splashing newborn baby and the studies of concentric circles created by water drops; these are represented in this volume alongside many previously unpublished images.

A flash of light, an imprint on paper: Adam Fuss

A flash of light, an imprint on paper: Adam Fuss

"Adam Fuss has made pictures of snakes and smoke; butterflies, birds, and rabbits; infants and infants' dresses; leaves, tendrils, flowers, and entire plants. These pictures are photographic but not photographs. They are photograms: images produced by placing an object on a chemically treated sheet of paper and exposing it to light. Though some details are lost, the ones we do see are not merely accurate. They are accurate of necessity, for the artist's flash of light leaves a direct imprint on the paper. Nothing intervenes between the object and its image, so we accept without question whatever his photograms tell us about the shape of a petal or the curve of a stem. Among Fuss's most frequent subjects is water—or, to be more precise, water's fluidity." —Carter Ratcliff, Adam Fuss: Water continue to blog
