This article went into much detail about the evolution of the photogram. Artists began this "camera-less photography" after the debate of dimension of space. Artists wanted to create 3-dimentional photographs. They needed something new and exciting and this is what they got! The process was pretty controlled but the exciting part was how unpredictable the results were. 

I really liked this quote...

"Inventions, they say, are always made when they are needed" 

I feel like this is so true.... When there is need for something new and exciting, we always find a way to come up with just that! And this process turned into quite a success. 

I also liked some of Schads photograms: 

I really like how abstract they are. I also really like how light plays a big role in each of the images.
