Walead Beshty has examined photography from the inside-out, playing with its inherent materials and processes while still making captivating images. As one art writer described the images: “Rich with swirling colors and reminiscent of the chemical baths that produced them, the pictures are the result of folding photographic paper so that it becomes a surface of angles and planes, corners and creases, and, when processed, a photo of nothing but itself.”
