Pinhole Images

An important part of my photography is being innovative with every day, "low tech" means of creating images. I find it very satisfying to make photographs from the cameras I construct with my own hands. I feel this camera-crafting process is nearly as important to me as making the images themselves.

The 20 images to the right are examples of lensless pinhole images, most of which were made inside my homemade cameras. I occasionally use a pinhole camera manufactured by Holga, and this work is represented here, too.

I use light sensitive photographic paper as negatives in my homemade cameras, and process them myself with standard black and white chemistry. The Holga takes standard film, which I also process myself. The processed negatives are then digitally scanned and inverted to make positive images.

Please feel free to email me with any questions about the photographs you see here.
