Sustainable Processes

Pinhole Camera Process

For the Ocean Plastic Pollution Project I worked as sustainably as possible. Cardboard cameras were held together with some plastic tape. I reduced this as the project progressed. Coffee tins gave the best results and were the most sustainable.

The Development Process

The pinhole images were developed in the darkroom.

I made my developer using bladderwrack seaweed and fixed the images in sea slat water..

Chlorophyll Printing

Paper Making

Using shredded paper from my discarded printed sheets I made paper into which I embedded some microplastic pieces recovered from Sherkin Beaches.
