Moving Landscapes 1998-2000
In this colour series, the notion of time is again very important.
The pinhole camera is here used like a drawing tool. The image is literally drawn by the pinhole camera during the long exposure.

The images depict natural symbolic elements in the landscape, such as the sea, mountains, and forests.
These elements, captured by the pinhole camera, create a dreamscape which transports the viewer’s imagination back to childhood fantasies,
to dreams and fairytales.

Chromogenic prints from colour pinhole negatives, 102 x 127 cm
