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."
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.
