Kingswood: Susan Derges Hardcover – 1 Jan 1999. by. Susan Derges (Author). Derges uses the wood as a metaphor for the dark space of the imagination and for the 'darkroom' of the photographic process. Her beautiful photograms, in which iconic images of fungi and bluebells float against a black void-like space, and her pin-hole images of the wood itself, conjure a magical presence, part real part imagined.

Susan Derges is a pioneering force in camera-less photography. Having trained in painting, Derges is particularly drawn to abstraction and has made a career of making room in photography for this interest. Believing that the camera always separates the subject from the viewer, Derges seeks to eliminate this mediation by exposing her photographic paper directly to nature-capturing ambient light in riverbeds, refracted faces in water droplets, and the shadows of leaves and trees in photograms.

Born in 1955, Susan Derges trained as a painter before turning to photography and in particular, to the cameraless photography for which she is best known. Susan Derges is internationally regarded and now considered to be one of Britain's most groundbreaking photographers. Much of her recent work has been made at night, in the open air, using the natural world as her darkroom. Drawing on the work of early 19th century experimental photographers, she has created a new and unique method of image-making.

Having trained in painting, Susan Derges expressed an early interest in abstraction because "it offered the promise of being able to speak of the invisible rather than to record the visible". She turned to cameraless photography after experiencing frustration at the way "the camera always separates the subject from the viewer". Maidstone, Kent: Photoworks, 2000.
