The photogram process is a camera-less method of producing imagery onto light sensitive paper and film. For two year between 2010 - 2012 period I worked almost exclusively with the photogram process. Turning my entire studio space into a darkroom enabled me to work on large scale photograms, using 30m x 1m rolls of darkroom paper acquired from the ministry of defences, who were selling off their surplus stock. I also used x-ray film and large format sheets of film to create positives, which were often cut and collaged and projected via overhead projectors and slide projectors. To expose the objects (predominantly material salvaged from the shoreline) I experimented with various light sources such as torches and flashguns.
