Pinhole Photography
Where: ARC (Adult Recreation Center)
When: Tuesday, October 7, 2014, 7:00pm-8:30pm

Jan Kapoor has been involved in fine art photography for many years, her primary interests being landscape, natural abstraction and still life. She has been drawn to specialize in pinhole imagery for the past several years, using her collection of handmade cameras in various medium to large formats. She finds that pinhole is most expressive of the imperceptible passage of time, making visible that which is invisible to the ordinary eye, and of the mystery of non-human life which surrounds us.
