Roll 8: Slowing the Selfie #3

I am delighted to have been invited to participate in a project called “Slowing the Selfie”, an exploration of the modern narcissistic selfie trend, but using pinhole photography and film.  Described thus:

“Using pinhole cameras and film, a group of regional photographers explores the juxtaposition of the modern day “selfie” and one of the oldest forms of photography. This project includes an art installation and series of free to the public events at the VALA Art Center.”

VALA, Venues for Artists in the Local Area, Eastside will host this exhibition May – June, 2016. at their Redmond Town Center art space. Everyone involved belongs to the local tribe of (pinhole) photographers, and it has been a lot of fun sharing our work and ideas as this moves forward.

Every photo submitted was created specifically for this project, and I found the assignment catalyzed renewed creative thought and effort. Not all shots on this roll are selfies –  The Bijou makes sixteen exposures per roll of 120 film.  A few might not be for the faint of heart. You have been warned.
