Pinhole photography is the perfect medium for Surreal Art. My photographs are produced with a camera that I made from a popcorn can. I have been making my own cameras for years and I am particularly fond of this new camera that I have been using. It can take up to 11 x 14 inch paper and is covered in clowns, which for me invokes the trickster spirit. With no viewfinder and a one shot paper negative, pinhole photography is like automatic light writing. There is a definite lack of control and sense of mystery as the images are created. I have been using this medium for many years to explore the unconscious and its relationship to the unseen. More work can be found on Instigram @fiftycentcamera
