Atsuko Morita Photography

Whenever I see work from a pinhole camera, I wonder why we've really had to move on to complex digital SLR's. These photos by Atsuko Morita are exquisite in person. I got to see them at the RayKo Photo Center this past weekend. Morita, still an undergrad, hailing from Japan has created cells of self portraits with the help of self constructed pinhole cameras shot from different perspectives. Her artist's statement includes, "Cells are the foundation, the building blocks of our existence but it takes the spirit or soul to give purpose and meaning as well as our personalities."
