Peter Shellenberger

Drawing from the history of science and photography, Shellenberger explores alternative ways of making photographs from camera-less techniques such as photograms, salt prints, and autoradiographs (exposures made with radiation), to large format camera images inspired by the experiments of Nikola Tesla. These techniques can require exposures that extend from days to years, calling into question the instantaneous nature of photography.
