Dutch Osborne created this striking photogram alphabet from found objects. Using a dark room technique, made popular by American artist Man Ray, Osborne achieved these negative silhouettes by placing the objects onto photo-sensitive paper which is then exposed to light. The magic of photograms is the unique results achieved by varying the length of exposure and the transparency of the objects. Q is my favourite letter of this set.
