“Us,” Large-Format Photogram, Gelatin Silver Print, 2/4 by Michael Flomen

Info

Canada, 2001

Michael Flomen’s dreamlike image is created without the aid of a camera, using an 8×10-inch film negative to capture the bioluminescent trace of fireflies mating, which he then translates into an exquisite large-format print.

Curator James Campbell writes: “With a debt to the histories of 19th-century photography and science and to contemporary considerations like abstraction, formalism, modernism and surrealism, Michael Flomen nonetheless transcends these genres with his unique vision and technique.”

Titled “US,” the print (# 2 of an edition of 4) is signed, dated, and stamped on the verso. It has been mounted archivally on museum board and set into a five-inch-wide ebonized frame.
