Jan Dunning – uses of pinhole photography

I recently came across  Jan Dunning, the London-based photographer and fell in love with her photography. She creates these absolutely stunning and mysterious images, which look like scenes from a fairy tale or Dream.  But the thing that interested me most was the fact that she only uses a pinhole camera. It is through the use of a low medium format, she is able to create these mysterious images that have “an unsettling, enigmatic perspective on the “natural” world.”  The language of the pinhole camera, and its long exposure times, allow for the artist to examine an infinite depth of field which lends itself to a transcendental quality.
