USE THE SCROLL ARROWS
FOR A PREVIEW OF THE BOOK
Photography has always been about experimentation, and anyone who thinks that the advent of digital imaging might have stopped photographers from inventing new ways to impress their film is in for a big surprise.
Experimental Photography compiles the most interesting and creative modifications for low-cost film cameras, manual printing techniques and unconventional use of the medium. This book accompanies the reader through the world of photography special effects and manipulations documenting techniques, approaches, experimenters, camera makers and their extraordinary creations.
To document the scene in its broadest, it also includes a section of some of the most exciting experimental photographers out there today. One picture at a time, Experimental Photography compiles a manifesto against visual homogenization.
