Pinhole and Acrylic Paint on Canvas

16

Experimental project.

One of my favorite things about pinhole is that it can capture a ‘while’, not just a fraction of a second. It’s a mini story, it’s something happening.

I made myself two selfportraits with an evident movement, a change, two moments in the same image. They turned more narrative than a ‘normal’ photo, so I decided to put them in context, more than the camera captured and complete the story.

I used analogue photoshop: BRUSHES, ACRYLIC PAINT, CANVAS, MARKERS and… VOILÁ! Welcome to the PINK ROOM and the BLUE ROOM, come on in:
