Poetics of Light, Renner and Spencer

Email
Poetics of Light: Contemporary Pinhole Photography, Eric Renner and Nancy Spencer. This beautiful book accompanies the "Poetics of Light " Exhibition at the New Mexico Museum of History, Santa Fe. Composed of selections from the Pinhole Resource Collection, housed at the museum. Published by Museum of New Mexico Press and awarded design honors. Renner and Spencer wrote that photographs were selected for the exhibit, in part “to show the mystery inherent in pinhole images, which express reality very differently from imagery made using cameras with lenses. Although describing the mystery of pinhole images is difficult, the concepts of soul, depth, yearning, timelessness, and archetypal feeling all contribute to the kind of visual reality produced, one perhaps only seen in a dreamlike state.”
