Angela Prosper long-time friend and former student at Photographic Center Northwest is a woman of many talents. Her first pinhole (seen below) was created in 2013 at the beginning of the project and it shows a view from the old cherry tree in her backyard, facing the sun. It was used in many different ways and stood out from the beginning.
Angela recently made five more pinhole cameras and headed up to the beautiful west coast of Vancouver Island to the little town of Ucluelet . She spent a week there and walked the Wild Pacific Trail, looking for places to put up her pinholes. Angela and her partner Grant wanted to capture images in a small window of time between 3 and 5 days. Far less than the typical exposure of several weeks. They set cameras up all along the Wild Pacific Trail and Ucluelet Inlet leaving them for less than a week. They hoped no one would take them down (which is what the Pinhole Bandit does) and that the bears, wolves and cougars would not attack them. Most importantly, they prayed that the images would be fully exposed before they had to leave the area.
Lucky for Angela and Grant and the Pinhole Project, all five pinholes were still in their spots on the final day of collection; They took them down and drove the 8 hours back to Seattle. Here are the images: A beautiful collection complete with titles. Angela, you rock. Find out more about this amazing person on her instagram page: @prosper_photo.
