Nude at Home - Pinhole Camera

The Nude at Home

I have been photographing the nude for 50 years, since completing my MFA in Photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1969.

I have explored multiple imagery, varied cameras and diverse processes

and techniques in an attempt to always create new works.

For twenty years in this series, I have used traditional 8 x 10 black-and-white film in a homemade oatmeal-box pinhole camera to create wide-angle distortions with its cylindrical focal plane. By replacing the black-and-white values with subtle hues through successive pulling of curves in Photoshop, I interact with and interpret the image. I photograph the model nude in her own home, apartment, or studio, surrounded by her possessions for two-minute exposures. This is a collaboration between model and photographer and my images attempt to reveal an intimate portrait of the subject.
