Day 17 – Back in 2011/12 when LoFi was just getting started we did a group project called Time Place Light based in Dunbar using various lens-less photographic techniques including pinhole and solargraphs. The results can still be seen on the project blog.
The slow, methodical, procedural nature of pinhole photography as an art, mirrors the process and cycles inherent in the production of food crops and other productive flora.D Clipsom
Do you remember your first pinhole photograph? Where were you on pinhole day? As a group Lofi has formed some wonderful memories of shared experiences. Brittonie Fletcher reminds us of this with today’s gallery of work.
Slow photographer and poet, Roddy Shippin’s project Up Above the Streets and Houses uses DIY beer can solargraphs to produced images exposed between 6 months and a year – Southfacing towards Bruntsfield, Edinburgh.
He has recently coined the phrase “Coronagram” – a chemigram made with expired cupbard contents. More information on an upcoming workshop with Brittonie Fletcher soon.
