Pinhole photography is a medium that satisfies my need to record the world around me in what I could only describe as an unashamedly romantic fashion. It is the alter ego of my other work; the evocation of ethereal qualities in subjects, eliminating the superfluous and allowing detail to emerge from the constraints of the technique.
Pinhole by its very nature, with long exposures, creates an image that is not of a subject captured in an instant of time but the passing of time in a single image.
Part of the process involves building the camera sometimes specifically for a given subject. This holistic approach makes the act of preparation, taking the photograph and printing the negative, a performance in which the image is the final documentation of the enactment of a work's visualisation.
