Walead Beshty is an artist born in United Kingdom, currently working in United States.

Beshty’s monumental photograms are made in a chemical darkroom entirely without the use of a camera. The artist rolls portions of a single piece of color photographic paper and exposes it multiple times to colors of light (cyan, magenta, and yellow). Since the exposure process must occur in total darkness, he works blind within a set of chance operations to create brilliantly colored and patterned pictures. Building on the long tradition of darkroom experimentation in photography, Beshty reflects on the nature of the medium at a time when chemical photography is facing obsolescence.
