Azure

recent work by artist Susan Derges has been made at night, in the open air, using the natural world as her darkroom. Derges has tracked the night sky with a camera and returned to the darkroom to combine camera based and camera-less techniques...

I LOVE Derges... These latest photos are gorgeous... The images she created by laying these large sheets of photographic paper in the creek at night, and letting the moonlight expose the image, are so stunning...

wait a sec...can you tell me more about the way she makes it????
i was wondering about it, and couldn't find no referances

I'm not certain how these images were taken, but the Taw River Series was definitely cameraless and the paper was placed in the river and exposed by moonlight...

See here and here...
