Jenny Tomlin

Jenny works with early analogue techniques; pinhole, solargraphy and the lumen/photogram processes to investigate micro environmental transformations. In solargraphy, a pinhole camera exposes over weeks or months, recording the sun’s changing arc in the landscape occasionally alongside a partial disintegration by the elements. Lumen prints (UV photograms) use sunlight exposing through plants or objects on darkroom paper, forming a photogram. The strength of light and the reaction of plant juices on the paper all contribute to a transformation.

‘I’m interested in introducing uncontrollable elements to the pinhole and lumen processes and using the results to explore further outcomes.’
