    At the dawn of photography, various image-makers explored camera-less techniques, and today there are a number of artists who continue to challenge the belief that a camera is necessary to create a photograph. Shadow Catchers presents the work of five leading practitioners Pierre Cordier, Susan Derges, Adam Fuss, Garry Fabian Miller and Floris Neusüss who, by casting shadows on light-sensitive paper or by chemically manipulating its surface, capture the presence of objects, figures or glowing light. The results are powerful images, often with surreal effects and symbolic content. This is the first book to gather together the exciting works of these key contemporary artists, revealing the technical processes and creative practices involved in their art. In an age of mass-produced imagery, Shadow Catchers offers hand-crafted photographs that are both haunting and thought-provoking.
