photography in Holland at a cultural centre, and I used to tell students
photograms were kids' stuff.
And yes, in the twenties Moholy-Nagy and others at the Bauhaus and later
Man Ray made beautiful things and I then would show some images from books.
Sometimes I made some photograms with students in their first darkroom
lesson in the absolute beginners course.
I changed my opinion after buying a beautiful picture of a feather by
Polish artist/photographer Blanka Wasowicz at an auction.The most beautiful
feather you have ever seen: white on a black background.
It turned out to be a photogram.
I showed it to students and made a simple photogram of my glasses to prove
how easy it was.
We kept on making photograms all evening, and I've been hooked ever since,
also in my art.
