This portfolio showcases ceramic cameras and pinhole self-portraits from the Holes Creek Series completed in 2009. All images were shot with handmade ceramic pinhole cameras on 4x5 sheet film. Final prints were made in the darkroom, with many of them processed using a non-toxic developer made with instant coffee.
