Liz DeschenesCamera-less Photography

In a video from SFMOMA, Liz Deschenes​ describes her​ intensive process for creating large-scale photograms,​ working outdoors at night in Vermont. “The temperature outside contributes to the work​. The ambient light from the buildings, from the sky,​ ​the moonlight, the starlight, the bouncing light from the buildings,​” all influence the look of the work, says Deschenes, as does her handing of the materials. ​
