In an age when you can take a picture with your cell phone, I enjoy exploring photography's roots. Pinhole photography stands on the basic physics behind photography. Light passing through a tiny hole produces a reversed image on a perpendicular plane. My camera is pretty simple. It is made out of black mat board and duct tape and is fitted with a Polaroid sheet film holder. The interesting thing is, I scan the Polaroid images and print digitally. So by using a pinhole camera, Polaroid film, and digital printing, my process just about covers the entire span of the history of photography.
