Phil Penne, Clearwater Member Since August 2014 Artist StatementMy photographs are my children.
Photography has been an important element of my life for over forty years. I use a digital camera, but have in the past used 35 millimeter, medium format, 'folding plate' cameras (including my favorite, a 1928 Zeiss-Ikon Donata) and several pinhole cameras of my own construct. Pinhole photography is still my favorite, even though I haven't done it in some time. There is something raw and perfect about this most ancient of photographic techniques that carries with it a certain allure.
