Doppelganger

The multiple exposure in these images allowed me to create the illusions of my self interacting with my self. Using pinhole camera I was able to stage and pose my self for several minutes to take an exposure and repeat this process again, thus creating multiples of my self in one image. The work has overall melodramatic feeling representing the theatrical character of the images, playing varies roles, engaging in intro-personal game with my self. 

Using pinhole camera is a great tool to explore early photographic technology creating multiple images. Even though digital technology is able to make the process easier,  the process using this "early" technology was important getting the archaic feeling. For me technology is a tool to make expressive work be it the newest digital tool or its predecessor, pinhole camera.
