Marco Breuer makes photographs without using a camera. In a process similar to that used to make photograms, one of the oldest photographic forms, Breuer directly exposes photo-sensitive paper to light and heat and materials like spit, blood, nail clippings, Windex, jello, beer, mold, kitchen matches, bomb fuses and hot coals. The result produces nearly pure abstractions that hover somewhere on photography's outer limits. This two-volume set presents Breuer's cameraless photographs together with a wide range of responses written by fiction writers, a psychiatrist, a poet, a composer and a chemical laboratory. Volume I contains images, volume II contains text, and both are spiral bound, providing an intimate, mysterious and coolly elegant notebook-sized package.
