Taking pictures with a pinhole camera brings photography back to its basics. Instead of impressing the viewer with life-like detail, it recalls photography’s past. In our modern day, we are often bombarded with photographic images, and we spend little time considering each one. I am more interested in a slow, contemplative study of images, which is encouraged by their ambiguity. With my series Through, friends gave me objects that I made into pinhole cameras. I then took pictures of them using their items. The photographs refer back to the homemade apparatus used to take their portraits.
