Unlike most photographers, Randy Grskovic uses the darkroom as a starting point for his work. He is affected by the chemistry, geology, and memory of the process. In combination with the science behind the darkroom, Grskovic uses content from history by purchasing glass negatives, smashing them, and printing the result. In each session he shatters the image more, making it impossible to recreate a previously printed image. For him, this Sisyphean process of printing a negative, breaking it, and printing it again until it’s finally dust illustrates his fascination with memory and how each time a memory is accessed it is unavoidably altered. His interest lies in the interruption of photographic tropes to challenge our understanding of historic composition and content.
