Took these in the medieval city of Carcassonne. I used my wooden box camera ( focal length 80mm) and Ilford MGIV paper.I flashed the paper several weeks before to reduce contrast… with little success. But I like the effect. It’s like history is clearly visible & the present surrounding it is blackened out.
A bridge, water, a man in dispair. I took this pinhole on a railroad bridge over a swamp. The bridge is out of use for decades and long forgotten. Somehow the picture remembered me of The Scream. Or what could have happened after this famous scream. A man walks away from the scene, tired, empty, relieved.
Intrigued by a picture of dead communards, I made a series of ‘coffin poses’. I used the apple butter tin-cam and gave the paper an extra bending inwards. The negative was thus shaped in a wave-form,to create an unnatural body shape and pose.
I made a new pinhole camera for 4×5 size paper sheets. I randomly punched a couple of holes in an area of about a square centimeter.So the camera has multiple pinholes instead of just one, and they have different sizes.
I loaded the camera with Harman Direct Positive paper, headed for the woods, and waited for something to happen.
