I have always been drawn to the unknown and contemplate what lies beneath the surface of things.
Walking along the shoreline or riverbank, a likely spot is selected. Using a converted film development tank as a pinhole camera, I flood the camera with water and sink it below the surface and make the exposure. Without the ability to compose and exposing by estimation, give luck and chance a large role in the process. The effects of water clarity, current, depth, and reflections add a serendipitous element to the images. Each image that I develop is a surprise and reveals what is hidden beneath the surface.
