  1. Man Ray was the most known for his photograms (he called them “rayographs”) and other photographers are William Henry Fox Talbot and Anna Atkins (17-99 to 1871). Atkins in fact was not only the first photographer to publish an entire book of photos (which were cyanotypes of photograms) but she is also considered the first female phogographer.

  2. Hi Scott,

    I watched your salt print video, very nice and thank you for posting that. You made mention that a few photographers became famous for their photo-grams. One was Picasso, would you email me their names I would like to look up their work.

    Best regards,

    John
