  • Catalogue Essay

    Fuss constantly re-thinks the photographic process in pursuit of images that embody the ephemeral. Exploring themes of life, death and transcendence, Fuss states that “in order for any photographic technique to work, it should be personalised and transfigured into a greater metaphor, engaging processes that take place in the natural world”. Using light and chemistry to explore the outer reaches of vision, Fuss works in daguerreotype and camera-less techniques such as photogram, aiming not to reproduce the seen but to discover the unseen.
