This solitary ruined house was build centuries ago, and now it's still standing in a solitary countryscape. I find this kind of remains so fascinating, and sometimes I called myself a "Ruins Haunter", such as the great american photographer Clarence John Laughlin.
To express the spirit of the place, I decided to shoot this image by a selfmade pinhole camera, using the technique of Solargraphy, leaving the camera (hardly fixed to a trunk) for two months in the environment, facing the sun. This way, on the sensible B&W paper, the sun design its passages during the daytime.
Pinhole fotography is my preferred technique because it is possible to shoot a photograph of time, not only of the subject. And solargraphy is anextreme way to do this.
Also, with pinhole photography you returns to the origins of the photographic art: no technology, no automatic support, only a cardboard box, a small hole, a piece of B&W paper and your fantasy and capabilities.
The paper negative was reproduced and optimized digitally.
