We all like to capture the world around us in unique and intriguing ways. Showing otherwise mundane and normal views, and capturing them in a way which gives a new sense of atmosphere and feeling. The twilight view, where low light plays tricks on the eye and mind. Its never the same.
This is a series of vignettes, looking through a wooden box, with only the sun and a pinhole to project the scene on to the paper. The cold and steely print might might seem like an image of mid winter. Whereas many of these were taken in stark sun.
These images were taken on hand cut paper neg, developed in chemical trays under the stairs.
The combination of long exposure, paper neg, and a lack of lens sharpness helps give a natural grounded image.
Recently I was invited to take over the Watergate Bay Hotel instagram account. Here is a selection of images I took during my stay.
