Pinhole photography exhibit in Stauffer Library for IDIS 210 – Arts in Society (Prof. Donato Santeramo)
“These photographs refer to a much different world than the one we are accustomed to. It is far more mysterious and unfolds with much greater subtlety than do the dictates of the day-to-day we have become used to.
The images were created using a Pinhole Camera; that is to say simply a box with a tiny hole in the front.
A Pinhole Camera has no lens, no focus controls; essentially nothing but light and film between the photographer and the image itself. It is the purest form of photography that exists. The film is processed using techniques dating from the nineteenth century and printed on paper etched with silver which gives the print a soft, mysterious presence.
I find using Pinhole Cameras both challenging and satisfying. It’s deeply evocative when suddenly the everyday world, and the consciousness that goes along with all that, collapses into Beauty. Now you’re dealing with something totally transcendent…”
The exhibit will be on display from February 4-15.
