I am an anthropologist and a visual artist with a passion for pinhole photography.


Working with long exposures, this method has given me an opportunity to explore the world of photography in a way that allows a different perception of movement and time, producing a range of unpredictable photographs.


The process is slow. Doing long exposures, up to half an hour, I take time to consider each motif and composition, making the entire process a meditative experience. The tonality of photographic paper appeals to me, even though it slows down the process even further. There's a softness to it, that adds to the expression of pinhole photography itself. Usually, I develop my negatives in a homemade solution of mint, sodium carbonate and vitamin C. Sometimes I use stinging nettles, red wine or coffee as a base.


Somehow the inherent dreamyness of pinhole photography suits the locations I prefer. I'm drawn to desolated places like graveyards and wartime monuments and the way their physicality bears witness to the past while at the same time they seem to be taken back by nature. The interaction of permanence and impermanence often turns up as the subject of my exploration.
