À la lumière de l'ombre
Frédéric Vidal "À la lumière de l'ombre" un des 22 photogrammes reproduits sur presse phototypique
Describing this book is a challenge. It’s both a way to display the artwork and the artwork itself. The story of its creator, Frédéric Vidal, is already unusual enough. At 33 he gave up his career in fashion photography to travel and experiment with photograms (sometimes called ‘cameraless photography’). These unique pieces are made by placing objects on a photosensitive paper and then exposing it to light. One of his photograms resembles a famous portrait by Man Ray. (It was a coincidence, however; Vidal was unfamiliar with the work.) This artist’s book presents 29 photograms taken from the series Matières, Dispositions intérieures, Persona and Douleurs, summarizing in some ways the last decade of Vidal’s work.
