Jeremy Blair is an emerging alternative process cameraless photographer, his medium of choice is the Silver Gelatin Photogram. Jeremy utilizes a similar method to Rayographs where he places objects and materials directly on to photosensitive papers or surfaces, exposes them to light, and develops them with a traditional chemical process. Blair constructs temporary pop-darkroom setups in enclosed spaces like bathrooms, classrooms, automobiles, and hydroponic growing tents. In addition to cameraless photography, he is an assistant professor of art education at Tennessee Tech University where he teaches the intersections of art and science.

“Guided by the alternative processes pioneered by Man Ray and László Moholy-Nagy, I investigate my physical environment, close personal relationships, and self by developing cameraless photograms. Found artifacts and materials interact with darkness and lightness to create curious narratives that reenact specific moments, represent people, and illustrate experiences from my life. I juxtapose x-ray films, plants, specimens, negatives, and found materials to weave these complex visual stories. All photograms in this emerging body of work were created in a temporary pop-up darkroom and utilize materials found throughout my home and region. Cameraless photography is a constraint that enables my creativity and aids me in exploring and reconstructing people, places, and moments. These photograms act as unique monotypes that illustrate the curiosities that encompass and define my lived experience.”
