Dan McCormack: the “Nude at Home”
I use the extreme wide angle distortions of the round oatmeal cylinder, pinhole camera to create a series of visceral images.Through successive pulling of curves in Photoshop, B&W values are replaced with subtle color. In this series, begun about six years ago, I photograph the model nude in her home, apartment or studio. With the model in her space, all the objects in the image are a part of the life of the model and they have their own personal stories. Then the pose, the furniture and the long, two minute exposures reveal an intimate portrait of the subject.The Nude at Home is a subset of a larger pinhole camera project begun in 1998.
