These prints and mixed media pieces are made using simple pinhole cameras that I make and then place in a variety of outdoor locations, mostly in wooded areas. I leave the cameras for several weeks, exposing them to the elements of nature. The cameras are positioned to record the paths of the sun across the sky as seen through earthly surroundings. During this time the paper negatives in the cameras are exposed not only to sunlight, but also to moisture, extremes of temperature, perhaps ice, mildew, insects and other components of nature. After an exposure of up to six months, I “harvest” these cameras and scan the negatives to see what nature has wrought. It is a matter of giving up control and allowing nature to contribute to the final image.
