Artist's description:

This solitary ruined tower (called locally "tower of Middle Earth", sometimes near to "Lord of the Rings"...) was build during Middle Age on a pre-historical site, to control an old road, from Rome to Ravenna. 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. But I shoot to medieval remains instead of Mississippi slave villas...
To express the spirit of the place, I decided to shoot this image by a selfmade pinhole camera.
Pinhole fotography is my preferred technique because it is possible to shoot a photograph of time, not only of the subject.
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.

Materials used:

paper, mat
