Through a Pinhole: The Western Landscapes of Mark James
Through a Pinhole: The Western Landscapes of Mark James is a solo exhibit of black and white photographs of the Colorado and American Western landscape created exclusively with a pinhole camera and blue sensitive film. Mark’s vision of the wilderness landscape is informed by nineteenth-century Pictorialism and Hudson River School aesthetics, as well as the survey photographers of the American West.
Initiated in 1995 with support from an Artist-in-Residence grant at Rocky Mountain National Park, this project has now spanned more than twenty years. Over 300 photographs now define the body of work from which the exhibit has been assembled. This collection of photographs stands as perhaps the most extensive study of a landscape using a pinhole camera.
