12 pages. An interview by Pierre Baudson with Pierre Cordier. Cordier (born 1933) is the father of 'chemigrams' which 'combines the physics of painting (varnish, oil, wax) and the chemistry of photography (photosensitive emulsion, developer, and fixer), without the use of a camera or enlarger, and in full light', became for him a source of experiments and a plastic language. It opened up a new visual space at the boundaries of painting, photography, and writing, allowing him 'to create entrancing images impossible to realize by any other means. Working like a painter, he replaces the canvas with photographic paper.''' -from Wikipedia. B/W illustrations. Text in Belgian, French, English and German. First edition (first printing). Very good illustrated copy, folded horizontally. 16.75 x 12 inches when unfolded.
