EMANATIONS: THE ART OF THE CAMERALESS PHOTOGRAPH. Geoffrey Batchen. Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth, 2016. Published in association with Delmonico Books, Prestel Publishing, New York. 200 pp. with 179 ills. (104 col.). 30 x 25 cm. LC 2015-46097 ISBN 9783791355047 In English.
Publisher's description: An unparalleled exploration of the art of cameraless photography, this expansive book offers an authoritative and lavishly illustrated history of photography made without a camera, along with a critical discussion of the practice. Since the early 19th century and the invention of photography, artists have been experimenting with various methods for creating photographs without a camera. At once exhaustive and compelling, this book reveals the myriad approaches artists have used to create photographic images using just paper and a source of radiation. Simultaneously a chronological history and a thematic study, this book explores a range of practices, some of which have been in use for more than a century, while others are entirely contemporary. From placing objects on light-sensitive paper and drawing on blackened glass plates to radiography, photocopying, and digital scanning, this is an elemental kind of photography that repudiates the idea that technology advances in only one direction.
