About the Collective
PAC is a collective of artists interested in exploring the artistic plurality of analogue and digital photography. Growing out of the spirit of Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day and the DIY artistic philosophy, they are hands-on, resourceful, playful, and open to constructive criticism. In regular gatherings, the collective engages in both critical discourse and artistic creation and is, from time to time, nomadic. PAC members participating in be.still are Sarah Crawley, William Eakin, lori fontaine, Beth Johnson, Jen Loewen, Merrell-Ann Phare, andBonnie Tulloch.
About the Publication
Collecting Light | Pinhole Artist Collective publication“Collecting Light” is a collaborative bookwork by members of PAC. In the winter of 2010, members of PAC built approximately one hundred pinhole cameras from 35mm black plastic film canisters. These cameras were then placed around the city and province to take photographs (called solargraphs) over weeks and months. These images were then the basis of a group show at Platform: centre for photographic + digital arts in August 2010. “Collecting Light” expands on this exhibition, incorporating solargraphs, individual visual responses to the project, and critical essays by Dianne Bos and J.J. Kegan McFadden.Contributing members: Marian Butler, Sandra Campbell, Sarah Crawley, William Eakin, lori fontaine, Jacquelyn Hébert, Beth Johnson, Jen Loewen, Natasha Peterson, Merrell-Ann Phare, Bonnie Tulloch
