In The Steps Of Robert Pinnacle  
  This work was made for a commission to document European spa towns. I chose to base the project on the career of the landscape painter Robert Pinnacle, who visited and resided amongst these unique societies which provided his main source of patronage.
 
In Pinnacle's era artists frequently used such devices as pinholes to assist perspective and, partly for this reason, I chose to re-construct his works using a pinhole camera. While re-tracing his career through Europe I made other photographic works using a variety of formats and processes, contemporary and historic, drawing on the narratives that prevail in these once fashionable locations.
