Camera-free photography by Marco Breuer

Review: Camera-free photography with beauty and bite by Marco Breuer - "Marco Breuer practices photography in a sculptural, performative sense, redefining the medium as physical and primal through embossing, scratching and scraping, burning, scoring and sanding. Diane Rosenstein included the New York-based artist in the gallery's inaugural group show earlier this year, and follows up now with a stunning career survey of nearly 50 works from the mid-'90s to the present. Breuer uses many of the raw ingredients of conventional photography (light-sensitive paper, time, light itself), but typically bypasses others, such as cameras, lens and negatives. What he creates are unique residual marks on paper, rather than replicable recorded images, lines and patterns yielded from concrete, chance-inflected actions. . . ." (more at link above)
