Darkroom Composition Experiments 

Darkroom photograms are one of the best ways to work freely and create a large amount of experimental work quickly! I was looking for a way to become more creative with my compositions and start overlaying my separate visual work together as one. I find that by printing my work onto acetate I can move elements around into the perfect place and really start to get to grips with the fundamental design principles (i.e repetition and clustering of imagery). The quality which I admire the most about photograms is the fact that you can never really predict what will be created and each image will never be the same as the last. All these little imperfections and ‘happy mistakes’ are what give the images more character than a traditional pen and ink illustration.
