A unique exploration of the art of cameraless photography, this expansive book offers an authoritative and lavishly illustrated history of photographs made without a camera, along with a critical discussion of the practice. This book reveals the myriad approaches artists have used to create photographic images using just paper or film and a source of radiation.

Simultaneously a chronological history and a thematic study, this book explores a range of practices, some of which have been in use for more than a century, while others are entirely contemporary.

Geoffrey Batchen is a photographic historian who has published numerous works on the subject and curated exhibitions around the wolrd. He is currently a professor at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand.
