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.
