Liz Deschenes is known for her camera-less photographic processes, through which she produces oblique and abstracted images. She is most famous for her photograms of ambient sun or moonlight, which appear to be metallic expanses with no discernable forms, as well as for moiré works that she makes using multiple exposures against a sheet of perforated paper, placed against a window. Deschenes, who says she is “interested in the conditions of display literally being part of the…surface of the work,” sometimes does not fix the light-sensitive surfaces of her photographs, allowing them to become slowly over-exposed during the course of an exhibition. Deschenes draws her inspiration from the earliest exponents of photography and their still-unperfected photographic processes; she is most influenced by William Henry Fox Talbot and Louis Daguerre.
