He develops his film in his friend bathroom. He was amazed
by the remarkable results that can be achieved by such technique and he tried
to build his own camera dorm a coffe tin box and loaded it with photo paper.
He read through hundreds and hundreds of pages looking for
more information. He was always attracted by the beauty of polished brass and
mahogany boxes, but then he realized that it is not that what makes a good
picture. A light-tight and a stable box together with an appropriate pinhole is
all that he needed. He loves to make his own pinhole cameras. He also
experimented with a matchbox pinhole camera, converted 35mm and roll film
pinhole cameras but he did not liked them at all. He prefers to use the large
format pinhole loaded with photo paper.
What attracts to him by making pinhole photos is the
simplicity of the device in contrast with the results that often cannot be
achieved by the technically cameras today. He loves the old process that slows
him to think about the picture.
Instead of sanding a metal sheet he burns the tiny hole by
an electrical spark into thin aluminum foil. He can make lot of pinholes in
short time that way. He also likes to
use X-ray film in his cameras. It has a higher sensitivity of film. He does not
use anything else.
