I have gone back to the basics.

My pinhole cameras are nothing more than a light-tight box with a tiny hole that projects an image on film. There is no lens and no viewfinder. A pinhole camera boils photography down to its simplest components: light and composition, a huge contrast to today’s digital photography. As a former photojournalist, I worked with digital photography since its very beginning. In contrast, my pinhole cameras are the oldest form of photography. 

The limitations and simplicity of the pinhole camera make photography new again for me. This simplicity has taught me a lot about photography and the way I see the world.
