Thinking Inside the Box: 3-Day Pinhole Camera Workshop at Orgeon College of Art and Craft

During this three-day workshop, Wayne Belger will share historic and contemporary examples of “vulnerable” work and its powerful connection with the audience so that workshop participants can then design and build their own camera to be used specifically for a particular subject they wish to explore. Students will use their individualized camera to photograph their intended subject and then work in the darkroom to bring their own personal history and their subject’s alive in the final photograph. Prerequisite: This course is open to intermediate and advanced students with a functional knowledge of camera use and darkroom work.

The world's first transparent pinhole X-ray camera is nearing completion

Divine Proportions

“If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the mighty one.” Bhagavad Gita

Using the Divine Proportion camera, Belger will photograph X-rays from inside a particle accelerator. The Divine Proportion camera is a lead glass encased pinhole camera, specifically designed to capture on film the scatter from the impact of a high intensity X-ray beam on sculptures representing creation and destruction. The sculptures will be selected based on iconic figures of creation and destruction from the region in which the particle accelerator is located.
