Howard Moiser – Relative Movement

Pinhole isn’t the only form of photography I practice, but it’s one of my favorite forms because of the unique creative challenges that it presents. Other forms of photography will give you controls that allow you to slow down the shutter speed and/or extend the depth of field towards infinity if you so choose. But there is something unique in the challenge when you have no choice in the matter – you have to work with that constraint on your control.

Some people get frustrated by this creative challenge. Others, however, fully embrace the form and find fantastic ways to leverage the constraints, turning them into strengths. Today’s featured artist, Howard Moiser, is such an artist. He is a prolific photographer, and his Flickr feed is overflowing with great pinhole work. Even further, he’s an experimenter, with whole albums dedicated to experimental approaches to image making in pinhole and other formats.

The result of all this work, of course, is hitting upon some truly phenomenal series of photos. One such series is his work titled “Relative Movement”. From the sampling below, I think you’ll agree. After taking in the photos below, I encourage you to take a look at his expansive collection on Flickr.
