CAMBRIDGE - Dianne Bos has been working in photography using pinhole cameras in innovative and unpredictable ways. Her motivation in using long exposures is to capture a passage of time, and memory of a place, rather than the instance of a moment.

For her solo exhibition Reading Room at Cambridge Galleries, Bos has been collecting books, including old titles from Cambridge Libraries, and turning them into pinhole cameras. By carving into the body of the pages, the books become camera objects capable of capturing imagery between their covers. The photographs taken with the book-cameras relate to the original subject of the books used. The exhibition includes a number of installations, video projection documenting individual pages of a book as it is transformed into a camera, and a series of book-cameras as objects along with the images taken with them.

In conjunction with the exhibition Dianne Bos will deliver a talk on the history and wonder of the camera obscura using the artworks as examples of photography that is quite literally a drawing with light. Used as a drawing device in the past, this simple technology has had an impact on art since the renaissance and it continues to influence Bos’ photographs and installations.
