Abstract Photographs

MICHAEL BETANCOURT NEWS

I made a series of fully abstract darkroom images between 1989 and 1994 that are available in a book from Amazon.com.

They represent an aggressively edited sample of what began as a darkroom experiment with solarization that expanded, to include photograms, but ultimately eliminated physical objects entirely to create complex visual imagery from chemical flows and pure light. The abstract images this process created are unique, produced without the intervention of camera or negative.
