Emilie Poiret-Brown

My practice focuses on cameraless photography, showcasing a form of photography which is generally overlooked. I aim to challenge our notions of what a photograph is and how we create them through exploring the boundary between photography and other art disciplines, primarily painting. Unlike conventional photography where the photographer’s body is distanced, my body is active in the mark-making, interacting physically with the photographic materials. Rather than freezing time, my work is a trace of its own creation. The process is not hidden but is made apparent through the chemical marks left on the surface, allowing an insight into the process of creation. My interaction with the surface is a private performance in which the viewer only has access to the aftermath, the trace of my gesture.
