The Underwater Pinhole Photography Project, since 1997
The Underwater Pinhole Photography Project brings my interests in the landscape of the ocean’s inter-tidal and sub-tidal zones together with my interests in such fundamental and historical optical/photographic forms as pinhole photography. In contrast to the simple, and essentially poetic underwater pinhole photographs of oceanic flora and fauna, the underwater pinhole cameras are complex, mechanical constructions that are a culling-together of daily and exotic components. Together with the photographs and cameras the Project includes such other works as: a film and a journal, a “kayak/darkroom” and other assorted equipment.

Funding for this project has been provided through a Creation and Production grant from the Canada Council for the Arts and from Thompson Rivers University’s Scholarly Activity Fund.
