The accompanying photo was made in the late afternoon outside the Reflections of China show, and was designed to capture the wealth of artistic detail and delicate textures, as well as to tell the story of experiencing the beauty and tranquility of a land far away. The structure at right is a stunning scale reproduction of the Temple of Heaven in Beijing that is part of the visually and culturally rich World Showcase at Epcot.
The image was made on 4×5 color negative film using a pinhole camera, which is a box with a hole at one end. No lens, no shutter, no focus. The purity of the image is what strikes me first. This (non) technology of pinhole photography is unique, and requires much patience and educated guesswork. This is my first and only pinhole photo to date.
The image was created for a convention planner magazine ad, touting the wonderful and varied venues available within the Walt Disney World Resorts.
