This selection of images are pinhole photographs which have all been captured with hand built cameras of various shapes and film formats. The prolonged exposure times NECESSARY to capture the image- three, five or ten minutes or more - is a transformative process, recording the passage of time, through its ruff hewn hole. Because of this time and space EXPANSION the images become poetic representations TIME CAPSULES if you will, people in motion disappear or are represented as GHOSTLY traces.
pin·hole /ˈpinˌhōl/ Noun
- A very small hole.
A pinhole camera is a simple camera without a lens and with a single small aperture – effectively a light-proof box with a small hole. Light from a scene passes through this single point and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box. The human eye in bright light acts similarly, as do cameras using small apertures.
