The art of cameraless photography dates back to the very discovery of photography and cyanotypes, in particular, have an illustrious history, discovered by the English polymath, mathematician, astronomer, chemist, inventor, and experimental photographer, Sir John Hershel. The first and most famous proponent of the form, Anna Atkins, published the first photography book of photograms made using the cyanotype process. Angela Chalmers, our featured photographer this issue, takes this historical process and extends it through contemporary digital photography and a ‘digital negatives’ to develop the process further. Seeing photographers combine such historical techniques with cutting-edge practices makes me think that we are unlikely to lose old photographic processes completely. The same is true of the new generation of photographers who are using film but scanning the results and using inkjet printers to create the final work. In many ways. Photography is like any practice, old techniques are borrowed and transformed by new generations of proponents to create novel work. I hope this means that there will be a small but significant number of photographers keeping most processes alive for future generations to discover and develop for themselves.

Endframe: Morning by Chris Friel

I feel like a bit of a cheat choosing this photograph as a couple a years ago I would not have looked at this sort of thing, never mind bought the book. more

Remote Places

I’ve written about my journey and why it was maybe even harder than I thought, so let the images take you to one of the last secret corners of Europe. more

Beyond the Spectacular

Most photographers want to make images that are “better” and “different” than the rest. In other words, “extraordinary”. But what does “extraordinary” mean? more

Roads and Back Roads

While driving you just think about the places you want to reach, the panoramas you want to shoot, but what about the roads that take you to these places? This is the story I want to tell. more

The long, lonely and often cold journey

Sometimes you start a story without realising you have done so. The narrative follows its own path, finds its own pace and carries you along unaware of its existence. more
