Nude But Not Rude

I use the extreme wide angle distortions of the round oatmeal box pinhole camera and the digital colorizations of B&W negatives to create a series of visceral images that probe the unconscious, stepping away from the literal reality and choosing instead to seek expressionism. Through successive pulling of curves, B&W values are replaced with color in separate channels that ultimately create the dreamlike state in the finished piece. Industrial sites, homes, architecture, landscape or props are juxtaposed with the model in the camera and that juxtaposition triggers a response that I react to while colorizing. The resulting images range from the absurd to the profound and from gender issues to politics. This work is rooted in 16th Century with the pinhole optics and combined with the 21st Century digital print manipulations. With its solarization-like tone reversals and silkscreen-like color layering, these images are a hybrid of Photography and Digital Printmaking.
