From the publisher
A wonderful collection of atmospheric images of ocean coastline produced with a pinhole camera (camera obscura). Using pinhole photography, a practically prehistoric technique in this digital age, the photographer relinquishes control, granting ultimate power to his subject matter, subtly reinforcing the immeasurable influence of our ever-changing horizon line. The results are warm and intimate images.
Features an introduction by Luis de Jesus and essay by Kelle Schilaci.
About Darius Kuzmickas
Born in Kaunas, Lithuania, currently lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
His varied spectrum of personal work consist of pinhole (camera obscura), landscape, conceptual and architectural imagery. He masterfully explores seams between photography and fine art, dark and light, literal and abstract, known and unknown, conscious and subconscious.
Darius works spontaneously, using his intuition to create something visually stimulating and exciting; something, perhaps, that has never been captured before in such a way. And yet, each piece maintains its own unique life and visual cohesiveness. He often uses the camera obscura (pinhole camera), and he is interested in basic, elementary occupation with the medium itself, researching and exploiting all the opportunities it offers. The actual photographic subject or motive remains in the realm of intimation and open to opposing interpretations. Observing his images does not often result in the recognition of the specific object or place, but instead tends to reveal a new puzzle. In a certain sense, it is “photographic primitivism,” which seeks a new beginning through recourse of the elementary.
