who, what, huh?
what is this?
This is a blog about pinhole photography, and related forms. It’s partly a behind-the-scenes notebook about work in progress, projects and general thinking aloud, but, currently, it’s mostly about other artists, techniques, kit, exhibitions, theories, history, or whatever as I find them.
This blog is not my main gallery site.

Among many other things, I’m:

- living in the middle of Edinburgh;
- itching to travel again;
- fond of deserts, maps, stories & stars;
- towards the end of my 30s;
- easily distracted;
- and very bad at writing biogs.
I’m also known as heyoka.

Photography without a lens. It’s about as low tech as you can get: I use cardboard or wooden boxes as cameras, and paper or sheet film negatives. Exposures are long, the depth of field is longer. It’s very close to magic.
