The Chemigram by Odile Bernard Schröder
One day in 1995, photographer Odile Bernard Schröder decided to leave her camera in the cupboard and instead devote herself exclusively to her research, exploring the vast world of alternative photographic processes. Using various techniques, she multiplies her experiments with light... Part one of a three-part encounter, this film sees her tackle the chemigram, a technique invented by Pierre Cordier in 1956, which uses both painting and photographic materials to create its images.
