ARTIST'S NOTE: The first time I made a photogram I used a Kiwi as my subject. I was fascinated by the detail, color, and texture of the fruit. It was different! I liked the speed and spontaneity of the creative process, as well as the ability to manipulate the flow of color and form. I knew this was the perfect combination for me — creating my art in the darkroom. When I discover a new flower or fruit at the market, I can't wait to get back to my darkroom to create something new and exciting with it. I'm always thrilled to see the result. To me, my photograms look like paintings. I call my work "Hayagrams."

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Haya Gil-Lubin studied color photography at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. For the past few years she has been working with unusual cameraless photography techniques based on the photogram (there are no cameras or film involved in this process). Haya uses an enlarger to expose a variety of fruits, vegetables, flowers, and other organic matter onto photographic paper. The resulting prints are unique, mysterious, and filled with colorful movement.
