    ‘Exposures’ was Manuel Vason’s first collection of collaborative photographs. The book was an unprecedented approach to the documentation and dissemination of work by performance practitioners. Alongside essays by Lois Keidan and Ron Athey, ‘Exposures’ brought together images made with some of the most celebrated artists working with performance in the UK.


    All the images exist as original 10×8 inch Polaroids. Each project was photographed using a maximum of ten sheets of film, during one day of shooting. The use of Polaroid film enabled a series of discussions that structured each short collaborative process. The instant results allowed a practical framework that has since developed into the more extensively dialogue-based modes of collaboration practiced.



    These photographs are neither a record of an event nor a portrait of an artist but something in between, or rather beyond: something more intimate, more authentic and ultimately more meaningful. They signify the work as much as document it
