sun marks

SUNRa1st

First image from the SunRa Solar Camera. 45 minute exposure from the rooftop of my studio. I did not develop the paper negatives, this is how they came out of the camera. The sun  ‘burned’ it’s track into the paper.

Another experiment from the Obscuravan/MPL. 130×130 cm on Ilford matte baryta paper.

I used multiple pinholes on this one. One of the first experiments with the ‘reversed process’, where I tried to transform the negative to a positive image. After developing, I bleached the negative with potassium dichromate and sulfuric acid before redeveloping it in normal light.

This photo was shot on epiphany (6th of january)

It was only after the development that I realized is has indeed a resemblance of the three kings.

A kind of magic.

I I want  explore photography as an act of catching time.

 The pinhole camera is humble, pure & simple and the best instrument to deal with time & the passing of it.

The Mobile Pinhole Laboratory is a kingsize pinhole camera. It is developed for experiments on very large format paper negatives. I use PE & baryta paper, negative  & direct positive. Roll paper & paper sheets. Really anything I can get my hand on. I try to work as simple & basic as possible.  The camera also functions as  darkroom , laboratory  & shelter.
