Publisher's Description

'Conceptual abstraction par excellence' The New York Times

Divided into sections that represent the breadth of Alison Rossiter’s (born 1953) process and vision, Expired Paper offers a comprehensive look at the artist’s body of cameraless photo-art—Latent, Landscapes, Pools, Pours, Dips, Blurs, Fours and Collages.

Art critic Leah Ollman has been contemplating Rossiter’s work for years, and her accompanying text serves as an ideal complement to the images: “All of the works pay homage to the rich idiosyncrasies of photographic papers across history, and restore a sanctity to the photograph as object. Made without cameras, lenses or film, the works are nothing but process and materiality.”

The book also includes a selection of early 20th-century photographic paper packages (which the artist has collected for over 10 years) in a separate booklet.

Limited Edition of 40 copies. Contains one of four unique silver gelatin prints, signed and dated by the artist.
