'TIME WARP: A Pinhole Portal of Perception,
by Canadian Artist, Margaret Lindsay Holton'
Award-winning Canadian artist, Margaret Lindsay Holton, has been making pinhole cameras, and creating pinhole photographs, for over 15 years.
Pinhole photography, also known as 'slow photography', creates unique imagery through a tiny pin hole of light. Sunlight passes through the pin hole into light-tight boxes or canisters. The light exposes photo-sensitive paper, creating a shadow image, or 'negative'. This negative is then processed in a darkroom to create 'positive' final prints.
The beauty of this long start-to- finish photographic process is that Time slows down. The process of pure pinholing cannot be digitally or mechanically rushed, manipulated or edited. As sun light is captured, time starts to warp ...
As Lindsay says, ... "Pinhole photography offers a completely different way of seeing the world outside of ourselves. Every moment becomes a meditation on Time itself. All becomes very 'Here & Now'..."
The selection of imagery in this exhibit are from rural and lakeside locations in Halton County, in Southern Ontario, Canada.
