Silvio Wolf's work is featured in The Edge of Vision: The Rise of Abstraction in Photography (Aperture, 2013). In his series of analog c-prints, Horizons, he has used the unexposed ends of film rolls as negatives. The resulting images of dramatic contrasting color are intended to stand alone even as they suggest a range of visual and metaphoric associations. As the artist states, "The Horizons series is based on parts of the photographic film leaders, self-exposed by light while loading a camera. Light radiation acts directly onto the photosensitive material before any pictures are taken and without the photographer's intention. The Horizons are created from discarded materials of the photochemical process. They are actual artists' appropriations. Each Horizon reveals a threshold, the clear limit between light and darkness, between matter and language."
