Selected Correspondences 2001-2010 — Walead Beshty

Walead Beshty is a Los Angeles-based photographer who came across a visually compelling and politically active method of developing photographs thanks to the TSA, whose X-ray scans at an airport checkpoint partially developed Beshty's pictures. Upon "proper" exposure, the photos had new streaks of color and form imposed upon the original subject matter, and now they featured the imprint of both their physical journey through space and the political systems created to disrupt spatial movement.
