About the Item

Two pinhile camera Chromogenic prints (Unique) Signed and dated, verso 40 x 30 inches, each print 40 x 60 inches, overall This artwork is offered by ClampArt, located in New York City. Robert Calafiore employs a hand-built pinhole camera to create large-scale, one-of-a-kind Chromogenic-prints. From 2008-11, Calafiore produced a series of male nudes. The psychedelic scenes are transformed by the unique recording characteristics of the camera’s wide angle, the extended exposure, and the light sensitive paper’s abilities and limits. Calafiore builds his sets in anticipation of specific, dramatic results. His interest in process, traditional materials, and the reaction between light and chemistry, as well as the psychological and associative charge of the nude male figure, drives the work in his studio practice. Elevating the ordinary to the extraordinary and the everyday to a magical place remains a primary motivator. No digital tools are ever used. Reflecting on the endless flood and speed of changing technology, Calafiore steps back and invests in prolonged experimentation, investigation, and hands-on making that all speak to a change in how we use our bodies and in the way we all see, interpret, and react to the world around us, given the on-going digital revolution. Calafiore received his MFA in Photography from the State University of New York at Buffalo, and his BFA in Photography from Hartford Art School.
