I began using an oatmeal pinhole camera for making 8x10 inch negatives.
I really like the distortion from the extreme wide angle of the round
camera. I have experimented with plastic cameras, panoramic cameras, four lens 3D cameras, video cameras and a flatbed scanner as a camera. The pinhole camera is a delight because it gives me results that are constantly a surprise.
I enjoy being able to make an image rooted in 16th Century pinhole optics, and then juxtaposing that with 21st Century digital print manipulations. The final image is a perfect blend of these opposites. In my diverse series, I have always tried to find a mix of image and process.
