About the Process

In his own explorations, Clement rediscovered and adapted the photogenic drawing, similar to W.H.F. Talbot's original process. Photogenic drawing specifies the process that relies on a printing-out exposure for both camera negatives and for prints.

Clement's innovation is that he uses his drawings as negatives, exposing them directly to photo-sensitive paper. The process resembles the cliché-verre but the difference between Clement's technique and the cliché-verre is that his drawings are not etched on a blackened glass plate, but are real drawings on paper. The use of glass is only used here to press the drawing on top of the sensitized paper, in other words, to make the contact print.

All  works are made on Printing-out paper.
