Abductions is a new series of pinhole photographs I've been working on that examine social representations of the unknown. These pictures depict scenes of people witnessing mysterious figures and lights from what might be UFOs, aliens, ghosts or similar occurences. Most photographic evidence of unexplainable events appears blurry and haphazard. This series utilizes the hazy, surreal quality and colour saturation of pinhole imagery to imitate and exaggerate these types of photographs. The goal of reinterpreting this imagery through pinhole photography is to enhance its emotional potency in hopes of creating an appreciation of the strange and inscrutable.

Public Clocks

This is the beginning of a new project I'm working on about public clocks and how they are regarded, ignored, appreciated, becoming irrelevant, etc. I am using the Prokudin-Gorskii process and emphasizing different parts of the red, green and blue images to give a sense of temporality, like the people passing by are ghosts as the time passes.

Nature is Crazy

Not my picture, but one I came across of the Northern Lights in Iceland. So so so so so so awesome!

A test from a pinhole camera I built. It works! Hooray!

I'm very aesthetically interested in Gondolas.

The way the top part curves around and hangs on the wire like a finger is so great.


I took some pictures of the cranes down around Coal Harbour in Vancouver, because I like the way they look, but I couldn't get close enough. Need to get much closer.

Seattle Show

Reifel Bird Sanctuary

I went to the Reifel Bird Sanctuary a couple weeks ago and photographed some of the scenery out there, in an effort to find new subject matter. These are shot with a Mamiya RB67.

Sooke Holga

A couple of holga images from Sooke last month. Double exposures and panorama images seem to work really well with a Holga.

I took this picture a couple weeks ago in Sooke, BC. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I think these long-exposure photographs may be starting to get repetitive and I need to re-invent things, and come up with a new photographic obsession, or something. I also think I need to try putting a filter over the bottom of the image next time, so that the land and the sky are more the same tone.

RGB Berlin

I made a few more attempts on my trip in Europe at creating the Prokudin-Gorskii effect. As a reminder, that is when you take three black and white pictures of the same thing, each with red, green and blue filters on the lens respectively. Then, in post-production, you convert each picture, or layer, into a duotone image of the colour of filter it had, and sandwich the three together. This theoretically yields a colour image. I'm still, however, not ending up with images that are very vibrant at all. It could be I'm not getting the exposure quite right on all of the images. Maybe I'll try it again another time.
Any thoughts on this image? Intriguing or dull?
