Adam Fuss

Adam Fuss, born in 1961 in London, is a British photographer who lives and works in New York. Over the past twenty years, Fuss has created a distinctive style by reinterpreting some of photography's earliest techniques, particularly the camera-less methods of the daguerreotype and photogram. His early experimentations with unconventional photographic processes in England led to his eventual abandonment of the camera altogether. Evocative and poetic, his life-size photograms are ghostly manifestations of light and shadow.
