"Untitled - 128g"
The Pendulum Project: This body of work was inspired by Bernice Abbott and her work to photograph many scientific phenomena in the 1950s. My photographs are long exposures, looking up, of an LED on a pendulum in total darkness. I am intrigued by the symmetry and mystery of the images.
Biography: Paul Wainwright is a photographer based in Atkinson, New Hampshire, who works in a traditional manner utilizing sheet film, a large-format camera, and silver gelatin printing. He is a mostly self-taught photographer who brings to his images an eye for space and light, subtle details, and an appreciation of history. Working with traditional photographic media such as sheet film and silver gelatin paper processed in a wet darkroom, he achieves in his prints a sense of quiet contemplation that comes from the slow, Zen-like pace of creating his images.
