Image Description: Marco Breuer's Silent Speed series brings together interconnected groups of work and features both black and white and color works, as well as polaroid sequences and collages. Between silhouettes, logos or shadows, the work takes form through a process of subtraction, by which emulsion is removed to reveal the substrate of the paper.

Photographer's Bio: Marco Breuer, a German photographer, consistently challenges the conventions of photography by eschewing the use of camera, film and negative in favor of directly interacting with material and process. Breuer coaxes a vivid range of colors and textures from his materials by subjecting photographic paper to various forms of manipulation by hand, including burning, folding, scratching, sanding and scraping the surface, often down to the white of the paper. The results of his investigations are abstract, one-of-a-kind photographs that record their own evolution through an accumulation of physical marks.
