No Silver Bird

Dan Commons


View at publishers website

No silver bird takes images made over a 4 year period and printed in a makeshift darkroom in commons’ attic. Influenced by 'Provoke' era Japanese photography, 'No Silver Bird' evades inordinate narratives and invites the viewer to engage with the images on their own terms. The book also acts as a celebration of the darkroom and the failures that occur in the process, including solarisations and chemigrams. Printed on silver paper from the original scanned darkroom prints showing the relationship between form and abstraction.
