I have photographed the nude for over thirty years having begun with Wendy, my wife. First outdoors in the landscape, then in the studio as it got too cold and I have continued that pattern in recent years. I came to pinhole photography from my involvement with palladium printing of sequential 2 ” negatives. The oatmeal pinhole camera makes
8x10 inch negatives with extreme wide angle and distortion because of the round camera. The pinhole camera is a delight because it gives me results that are constantly a surprise. I develop the B&W negatives, scan them into Photoshop, and then colorize the image by pulling curves in each of the channels. I enjoy being able to make an image rooted in 16th Century pinhole optics, and then juxtapositing that with 21st Century digital print manipulations. The final image is a perfect blend of these opposites. In my diverse series, I have always tried to find a mix of image and process. images ©copyright Dan Mccormack 860
