The Nude at Home
I use the extreme
wide angle distortions of the round oatmeal box pinhole
camera and the digital colorization to create a
series of visceral images. Through
successive pulling of curves in Photoshop, B&W
values are replaced with color. The Nude at
Home is a subset of a larger pinhole camera
project begun in 1998. In this series,
begun about three years ago, I photograph
the model nude in her home, apartment or studio.
With the model in her space, all the objects
in the image are a part of the life of the model.
Then the pose, the furniture and the long, two
minute exposures reveal an intimate portrait
of the subject.
