Pinhole, Cyanotype and Textiles


Note, this page is still being assembled.

Images on this page are copyright Rae Starr

The images on this page were made by Rae Starr with a Zero 5x4 Pinhole Camera and printed as silver gelatine prints or as cyanotypes.  In addition to camera based images Rae works with plant form photogrammes in cyanotype on textiles.  These textile pieces are then used in larger textile works.

Rae Starr started working with textiles at the age of seven and photography after her mother bought her a Kodak Vecta 127 camera for her ninth birthday.  Rae also works with a Zeiss Contaflex, the prettiest SLR ever made.  Images from this camera to follow.  A 10x8" pinhole camera specific to Rae Starr's needs is currently being designed and built.  She intends to use it for further Broke Inlet and her planned Wheatbelt pix.  The Wheatbelt work we plan to do is mainly due to the way Rae identified with and became rapt' by the Wheatbelt landscape.

Much more to follow when I have photographed Rae's new work and when she has the time to sit and do the writing to head this page.
