The shoe pinhole camera was placed in front of a mirror shard during the exposure. Image size: 14x7 inches, matted 16x20 inches. One camera, one image.
Concept process: I found flotsam and jetsam objects along the
shoreline of the Texas Gulf Coast and mapped the spot where they were
picked up. In my studio, I converted the found objects into pinhole
cameras. I loaded them with film and returned to the location where
the found objects (now pinhole cameras) were mapped. I placed a mirror
shard in front of the camera and let the camera photograph itself. The
idea was to come full circle - a play on the shape of the pinhole.
Of course, there's commentary about our environment, recycling, and the symbolic meaning of a shard of mirror.
