The Art of Photograms

Oh Monday...the vacation is over and real world kicks in. I had a wonderful beach weekend and didn't want it to end. I appreciate all your comments and hope you had a great weekend too. It's back to the grind, but that also means sharing inspiring ideas with you like these lovely photograms by Leah Sobsey. A featured artist at the REGROWTH exhibit, Sobsey's natural work is like breath of fresh summer air.

These are beautiful. You can really personalize a space with this technique.....or, AH HA....maybe even a gift.

PS-- I just noticed the Au Revoir Simone CD on your sidebar-- I went to high school with the middle girl on the cover, Erica Forster. Funny, huh??

i once wrote a term paper on laszlo moholy-nagy's inventing the "photogram" (allegedly) - he stressed Paul Strand's "purity of means," so to speak, and emphasized the purity of light and form.

beautiful!

Very nice! I know it stinks to be back in the throes of it after a holiday weekend, but take heart that you're able to keep up with the blog despite it! I feel like I've been gone forever . . .

Hey Harriet said...

Thanks for sharing these beautiful photograms by Leah Sobsey. I love discovering more Photogram artists. I dabble in making photograms. Mine are not on the same level as Leah! I did a photogram post on my blog last month which included a couple of mine. If you're interested ;) Sorry I don't have the link to that post. Thanks again for sharing as I'm all inspired to create some more :)
