About the book:

This book features images from two still life series made with pinhole cameras: “Ex Libris,” is a group of autobiographical images, featuring books and other objects related to themes and ideas central to the artist’s inner life, made with a handmade 5×7 pinhole camera. “Dreamtime,” is a series of still life images, made with a 3-pinhole camera, which imaginatively blend disparate and/or associated elements to suggest a dreamlike story or idea.

About Jan

Jan Kapoor has been involved in fine art photography for many years, her primary interests being landscape, natural abstraction and still life. She uses medium and large format cameras, and does extensive printing in cyanotype and platinum/palladium. Kapoor has been drawn to specialize in pinhole imagery for the past several years.

Jan says:

I find that pinhole is most expressive of the imperceptible passage of time, making visible that which is invisible to the ordinary eye, and of the mystery of non-human life which surrounds us.

Jan’s artistic expression has been greatly enhanced by her fine arts background, which includes studies in painting at the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston; a two-year program in fine art photography at the Southeastern Center for Photographic Arts; and her recent completion of a BFA summa cum laude in photography at Georgia State University. In addition, she cites influences on her work such as Imogen Cunningham, Clarence John Laughlin and John McWilliams, among many others.
