Spanish term or phrase: copiar por contacto
This is a text about an Argentine photographer. I am not sure if "contacto" here means actually physical contact (the artist has worked in photograms, in which an object is placed on photographic paper directly), or "contact sheet," or something else...

IN this series, she took photographs of corners with a digital camera and then erased the city, leaving only the wires and cables:


La artista las fotografió con una cámara digital, luego borró la ciudad de los fondos y sólo conservó los cables, y más tarde, facetando una vez más los procesos digitales con los analógicos, imprimió los archivos en una película que copió por contacto en el laboratorio blanco y negro….

Thanks!
