Vane Bor is an important representative of Belgrade Surrealism. His photograms are held at the Museum of contemporary art, as part of the artist’s Legacy.
A photogram is an experimental photography technique that is achieved without a camera. The object is placed directly on the surface of the photographic paper, and then exposed to the light. The result is a negative shadow image of the presented object in different tones that depend on the transparency of the used object. Vane Bor experimented with photograms by using broken bottles, tangled ropes and scrunched paper. In this process the objects lost their recognizable attributes and transformed into traces of light or flat shadows that float freely against a dark background. This type of image arouses a series of automatic associations, that reveal new ways of observation.
Vane Bor je značajan predstavnik beogradskog nadrealizma. Fotogrami Vana Bora čuvaju se u Muzeju savremene umetnosti, u okviru njegovog Legata.
Fotogram je eksperimentalna fotografska tehnika bez korišćenja fotoaparata. Predmet se postavi direktno na površinu fotografskog papira, a potom izloži svetlu. Rezultat koji nastaje je prikaz predstavljenog predmeta u negativu, različitih tonova koji zavise od nivoa transparentnosti predmeta koji je korišćen. Vane Bor je eksperimentisao sa fotogramima koristeći razbijene flaše, zapletene kanape, izgužvan papir. U ovom procesu predmeti su gubili svoje prepoznatljive atribute i pretvarali su se u svetlosne tragove ili plošne senke koje slobodno lebde na tamnoj pozadini. Ovako dobijene predstave pobuđuju niz automatskih asocijacija, otkrivaju novi način posmatranja.
