Tiane Doan na Champassak’s work is driven by a fascination with gender identity issues, revealing a decidedly aesthetic sensibility. For each body of work, whether gallery prints or limited edition books, he seeks out the most appropriate techniques, materials and formats.
In Sunless, transgressive sexual encounters have been captured by the photographer on Ilfochrome film and interspersed with stark monochrome impressions of the urban architecture in which they are anchored. Consequently, Sunless pushes the limitations of offset printing to the limit by attempting to accurately reproduce Ilfochrome prints through the use of high pigmentation inks combined with silkscreen varnish, juxtaposed with large format matte-varnished duotone images.
The edition has been sold out since early 2016 but due to demand, we are making a very limited number of pristine First Edition copies from our archive available to collectors.
