Pour une définition de la photographie expérimentale: jouer contre les appareils

Marc Lenot

Abstract


What is experimental photography? Experimental photographers do not abide by the standard rules of photography, they play against the photographic apparatus. Some photograph without a lens (pinhole) or without a camera (photograms). Others play with light, time, chemical development, or printing. And some erase the author-photographer, or use him differently in the process. Contemporary experimental photography is not a school, nor a movement, but simply a current, a moment between the decline of traditional documentary photography and the rise of digital photography.
