“A photogram is a contact print. It is made by placing something opaque or translucent on light sensitive material and then exposing it to light. This blocks out part of the light, and makes a pattern or picture on the light sensitive material when it is exposed to light and processed.”
A photogram is a photographic print made by laying objects onto photographic paper and exposing it to light.
Man Ray and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy were know for their photograms. Man Ray called the Rayographs.
You need to bring a variety of items from home to create your photograms. Bring enough that you are able to create 2 different photograms. Items you can bring: anything that has some type of shape, design/pattern and has some transparency. Opaque items, light will not be able to go through and it will be solid white on your photogram. Ex.. fabrics, lace, photos, negatives, rice, ribbons, cassette tapes, etc.... There are so many different type of items you can bring from home... be creative!!
