Pinhole Wanderings in Rome
Rome in sunshine. Rome in rain. Rome even in snow.
The Tiber flooding.
Since 2005, I have been walking along the streets of Rome with a lensless camera and a tripod.
On cobblestones and age-old basalt slabs. Among ruins, monuments,
churches, bridges. Hills, pine trees, cemeteries. Cars and scooters.
I have recorded my impressions on film through a pinhole,
a tiny hole with a diameter of 0.18 mm, in a thin sheet of metal.
My limited edition book Roma Stenopeica – Pinhole Wanderings in Rome, published in 2017 after twelve years of work, contains 90 pinhole photographs selected from some 2700 negatives.
