Pinhole photography is apparently simple and direct, but it can yield
complex images. With no lens or viewfinder, the pinhole camera allows me to explore and
create mystery and ambiguity – in many of my photographs the images appear to be emerging from,
or about to enter, another time or place. I have used pinhole cameras exclusively for 20 years,
traveling throughout the American South, the Chesapeake Bay watershed area, and Italy.
The iconic bridge over the Schuylkill River in my Philadelphia neighborhood of
Manayunk has been a constant source of inspiration and pleasure.
My pinhole photographs are shot with film, black and white and color. They have been shown in juried, group, and solo exhibitions throughout the country and are in private and public collections. I collaborate with my husband, Thomas Parker Williams, on artist books featuring my pinhole photographs.
