This unique dye destruction print by contemporary British artist Christopher Bucklow belongs to the artist's iconic Guest series of "cameraless" photographs featuring the shimmering silhouettes of men and women. Bucklow's process for the Guest series involves tracing the subject's shadow on a sheet of foil and then making countless tiny holes in the foil silhouette. Bucklow then superimposes photographic paper with the foil and briefly exposes the paper, resulting in a unique photogram. The titles of the works indicate the date and time of day when the works were executed, which determine the type and intensity of the light used to create the piece. Christopher Bucklow's work is represented in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, among other institutions.
