Liz Deschenes

Instead of the oft-cited “decisive moment,” the work of Liz Deschenes places the focus on change. Without a camera, she exposes photographic paper for several hours at night, in the open air. The resulting photograms reveal subtle traces of weather, chemicals and the artist herself. Once the images are fixed, they continue to oxidize slowly – at a speed that depends entirely on the ambient light – and so they address another one of the fundamental aspects of photography: light itself.
