Pinhole image from the performance ‘Der Hase its in kuhnes Tier’. As true hermits, we locked ourselves up for one week in a large vault under the theater.
The ‘Bananacam’ (pinhole camera made from a bananabox) was a crucial element of this performance that combined sound-art, dance and slow photography. The 20 minute performance was captured in one image (40×50 cm barytapaper) en was processed live with the audience at Theater de Nwe Vorst
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.
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.
See me (nearly get) shot under the shower.
This picture in honour to ‘The Guns of Brixton’. Can’t remember ever hearing the original song of The Clash, but I fell in love with the version of Nouvelle Vague
