Adam Fuss

Adam Fuss, born in 1961, has refined a cameraless technique in his work, relying on the most basic infrastructure of photography: objects, light and light-sensitive material. His work includes photograms of water droplets, smoke, flowers, christening gowns, and birds captured in flight. He is also known for reviving the laborious daguerreotype technique, with breathtaking results.

His work is illustrated in several monographs, among them Adam Fuss and My Ghost.  The Fundación Mapfre, Madrid, mounted a comprehensive survey of Fuss’s work in January 2011. His work is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among many others.
