The Pinhole Project goes to Chicago

Fine Art PrintsBio

I made this pinhole image from the 30th floor high above Michigan Avenue this last weekend in Chicago.  It is only a four day exposure but snow had fallen and the sun was out in the cold bright air. Perfect weather for long pinhole exposures.   I went to Chicago to attend the 50th Society for Photographic Education Conference, where about 1500 educators from around the country gathered.   It was inspiring and fun and I am extremely tired.  One of my favorite parts (not counting hearing Martin Parr and Elaine Mayes speak), was seeing the work of several hundred of the participants during the Friday night curator walk through.  I loved showing the Pinhole Project to many people that night.  The next day, I spoke with the Ilford representative, (straight from England) who gave me some interesting possible explanations  concerning the color shifts that we have been getting in the exposures.  I will be communicating these findings in future blogs.   Stay tuned.
