The Art of Cameraless Photography: Judith Lyons in conversation with co-curator Christopher Adams

About

Judith and Chris will be discussing the art and history of cameraless photography, the technical ingenuity of these pieces and the influences behind her work. Currently leading workshops for the 'Shadow Catchers: Cameraless Photography' exhibition at the V&A, Judith is also showing work at the Rich Mix in Shoreditch as a part of Photomonth, and in the summer gained a four page article in Amateur Photography Magazine. The works on display by Lyons belong to two series in which she takes plant and flower specimens as her subject matter. 'A Different Nature' comprises images created in the darkroom without a camera or film, while 'Un/natural Forms' features images of plant components that have been deliberately deconstructed, recombined and further transformed using inks and dyes. Creating hybrids that are unnatural and botanically flawed, they raise questions about contemporary society's relationship with the natural world and the increasing genetic modification of plant species.
