"Coney Island Through the Invisible Lens"
The two images above are pinhole photos of Coney Island shot by Anna Sawaryn, who is having a show of her work called Coney Island Through the Invisible Lens that open on February 2. She writes:
This is photography in it's simplest form, using a wooden box, NOT a camera. The box does not have a lense or automatic shutter. The exposure time ranges from several seconds up to a half hour. This gives the images an 'old world' almost ghostly, sometimes, distorted quality. Pinhole photography best captures the 'essence' of the subject being photographed. I like to use pinhole photography to document places that are changing and are at risk of vanishing. These are my 'memories' of Coney Island and the East Village.The work will be on display from February 2-15 at the 4th Street Photo Gallery, 64 East 4th Street. The opening reception is February 3 from 2PM-6PM.
