Artist info

I use the distortions of the oatmeal box pinhole camera and the digital colorizations to create a series of visceral images that probe the unconscious, stepping away from the literal reality and choosing instead to speak with a Jungian expressionism. Objects or places juxtaposed with the model trigger a response that I react to while colorizing. Through successive pulling of curves B&W values are replaced with color in separate channels that ultimately connect with the dreamlike state of the finished image. In 1998 I began to work with pinhole photography. Using an oatmeal box pinhole camera, I shoot 8x10 inch B&W film. With its extreme wide angle and distortion, the camera gives results that are constantly a surprise. I develop the B&W negatives, scan them into Photoshop, and then colorize the image. This imagery, rooted in 16th Century pinhole optics, juxtaposed with 21st Century digital print manipulations, is a hybrid of Photography and Digital Printmaking.
