Selfportraits

Selfportraits

This series dates back to 2007.

I was intrigued by a module at my art-school in Gent given by Lieven Neirinck about camera obscura and started experimenting with my Canon 350D. In the dark room I transformed my lens-cap to a pinhole and started to make digital camera obscura selfies.

Using a 5 minute shutter-speed I moved away from the camera about  20 seconds before the shutter would shut down which resulted in ghost-like pictures, as one could see right through me.

I printed them on chipboard and presented them as paintings on easels.
