Preview of works Exhibited at Studio 239
Open House Weekend, May 21-23, 2010
Some of the allure of memory is that its imagery is just beyond our grasp; we get only hints and suggestions of detail, of space, of color. The pinhole camera uniquely captures this pleasure, this sense of the eerie—precision eluding the viewer but the subjects, the color and light pull from what we felt was once seen.
These images of the Southern Vermont woods are made with a layering of technique. They are first captured on film with a pinhole camera in 3 to 4-second, handheld exposures. The negatives are then scanned to a digital file and printed in both negative and positive formats on Fabriano Artistico papers. The texture of the Fabriano paper adds a sculptural quality—a depth as the light reflects more diffusely on the surface.
