the twin scapes pinhole photography: hideharu matsuhisa
The Twin Scapes is a photographic response to the overwhelming wave of digital technology sweeping the globe. Through a fascination of pinhole photography as the most basic means of producing an image directly onto paper, without lens or film, Japan and Australia are featured through the eyes of a Japanese photographer using natural light at its highest and lowest levels resulting in an intense play on shadows and shade to depict differences in history, culture and sensitivities.
