Thomas Ruff created his groundbreaking Substratum (or 'Substrat') series in 2003. This series consists of camera-less photographs made without negatives. Ruff appropriated these images from Japanese anime or Manga from the internet, which often feature intense neon colors. By blurring and superimposing the images, he makes the originals unidentifiable, digitally layering more and more colour until they lost, in his eyes, their quality as 'photographs.'
