Kelsi Frost submits Chris Bucklow


Chris Bucklow uses what would be considered thousands of "cameras" to make his images. He draws the silhouette onto a piece of tinfoil and then pierces the foil thousands of times to create his pinholes. He then uses a large format homemade camera and places the foil on top of color photographic paper and allows the sunlight to expose the paper through the thousands of pinholes. He achieves variation by changing the intensity of the light, the time of day and duration of exposure. While not used in the conventional form of "pinhole photography", essentially, each hole is a record of the sky and sun at the time of exposure and when all put together it forms a silhouette.  This could be pushed into entire scenes based off of strategically placed holes. Oh the possibilities!
