These images were created by photographer Taylor Curry without a camera, using a process known as Cliché-Verre.
“The Cliche-Verre, to me, is quite literally Nature as the Negative. The items are placed directly onto a 4×5 or 8×10 glass plate. Using the color enlarger, I project the specimen onto 8×10 color film, RA-4 Color paper or Polaroid film capturing the image.
These are the lines which a Syrian student wrote in his notebook, which was later found by his teacher in Madinah.
-“When the war ends in Syria we’re going to close its doors and put a sign that says “nobody can enter”. We’re going to cry out of joy by ourselves, just like we lived our sadness by ourselves.”
Atomic bomb explosion at the Nevada Proving Grounds, photographed by Edgerton and his colleagues at EG&G for the Atomic Energy Commission; before 1952. Revealing the incredible anatomy of the first microseconds of an atomic explosion, this ominous fireball was documented in a 1/100,000,000-of-a-second exposure, taken from seven miles away with a lens ten feet long. The intense heat vaporized the steel tower and turned the desert sand to glass. (from “Stopping TIme” (1987), pp. 144-5). (CC)
