Adam Fuss "" My Ghost ""



Adam  Fuss ,b 1961 ,British 
'Having worked as a commercial photographer, Adam Fuss is conscious of what he calls "the pervasive technological-consumerist culture". In response to this, along with other artists of his generation such as Garry Fabian Miller and Susan Derges, he has returned to the simplest photographic means: photography without the use of a camera. Such procedures recall the earliest photographs of the 1830's and 1840's. In Fuss’s work, light is used as a metaphor to illuminate the processes and stages of human life.'

"A nineteenth-century child's dress is carefully laid out for our viewing. Perhaps, because we are aware that it is a part of lost time, our thoughts go to its missing inhabitant- an ethereal presence, intricate to the weave of the fabric before us. And then there are the birds, scattering in a grey photographic dusk, soundless. Now, the mirrored surfaces of the daguerreotypes flicker before us, never completely giving up their secrets. In this body of work the artist essays loss and its attendant ghosts."--the publisher
