Introduction
Marco Breuer (born 1966) is a German photographer. Much of his work is undertaken without the aid of a camera, aperture, or film, being instead produced through a combination of photogrammic, abrasive, and incisive techniques.Breuer works in and outside of the darkroom, exposing photographic material to heat, light, and physical abrasion. Drawing implements have included 12-gauge shotguns, the guts of electric frying pans, modified turntables, razor blades, and power sanders. Breuer’s photographic techniques include recent works on chromogenic paper to early black-and-white photograms, gum bichromate prints, silkscreens, artist books, and unlimited newsprint editions. Breuer was born in Landshut. He received a degree in photography from Lette-Verein Berlin in 1988 and later attended Hochschule Darmstadt–University of Applied Sciences, graduating with an advanced degree in photography in 1992. He is the recipient of a Guggenheim fellowship. He has been a guest lecturer at the Yale School of Art, Rutgers University, Princeton University, and the San Francisco Art Institute, among others; and has taught photography at New York’s School of Visual Arts, and in the MFA program at Bard College. Breuer lives in upstate New York.
