art > Pinholes | 2003 - 2005

There is very little left of the Brooklyn from my youth. Many faces and buildings have changed. Even some of the streets have changed direction. The Brooklyn of my youth that feels most familiar lies underground in the subway. While growing up the subway was how my family got around. From Madison Square Garden to Coney Island the "iron horse" as my mother called it was the way to travel.

When I was introduced to pinhole photography in graduate school, I wanted to explore how the medium could transform a location I had known all my life.

The photos were all shot with a 4x5 pinhole camera. The exposure time for all the images was 60 minutes.
