Photographer Christopher Bucklow pushes the boundaries of his medium to explore nature, process, and the human form. As a part of the “cameraless” photographic movement in the U.K., Bucklow's ongoing “Guest” series (1993-) uses pinhole camera techniques to create large-scale photograms of human figures. The complex process begins with projecting silhouettes onto aluminum foil and tracing them with thousands of small pinholes. He then places the foil over a sheet of photographic paper and exposes it to sunlight, the various qualities of light on a given day yielding different colors and shades in the projected image.
