NICÉPHORE NIÉPCE: Joseph Nicéphore Niépce produced the first metal heliographic plate, in 1826, used to create a reproduction print of the original 1633 etching of Le Cardinal d'Ambroise by Isaac Briot. In the same year Nicéphore Niépce pioneered the photographic process using a pewter plate coated with Bitumen of Judea and a further coat of light-sensitive silver salts to capture an image from his kitchen window at Le Gras (La cour du domaine du Gras), Saint-Loup-de-Varennes. The French inventor's Pyréolophore, the world's first 'internal combustion engine', which he conceived, created, and developed with his older brother Claude, earned a patent on July 20, 1807 from the Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, upon powering a boat on the Saône upstream.
THE NO SHOW: “As words go NO is short and to the point, perhaps more so than any other. Put into its varied context — the pithy and the pastoral — by the brilliantly observant Mark Chester, NO guides us from our first roller coaster ride right up to the cemetery gates with humour and humanity.” — the -logue
Presented in Boston by The Isole Gallery of Art + Industrial Design, The NO Show features select images from the book No in America, a collection of 150 images accompanied by George Toomer’s text, newly presented photographs from the NO archives, as well as new additions to the NO portfolio.
Forthcoming from Un-Gyve Press, a newly designed deluxe edition, with full focus on the photographs that speak for themselves, a resounding NO.
N.B. The alphabet swatch colour is New Laurel from the Un-Gyve Palette.
