Mary Carr-Chaisson!

Mary Carr-Chaisson is a visual artist and a pinhole photographer. She has been working with pinhole cameras since the early '90's, and uses two wooden box cameras. Pinhole cameras are constructed from materials such as boxes or cans, which are made light-tight. A piece of brass or pie plate serves as the camera lens. The aperture is created by inserting a stick pin directly through the material. Mary uses film in the pinhole camera, develops it, and then creates prints by hand in her darkroom. She has an eye for old buildings, landscapes, floral and fauna and likes to explore textures, reflections, shapes, and tone in her subject matter.
