I came across Chris Ellingers photos a couple of years ago when I read about the interesting technique zone plate photography.Its like pinhole but with a different "lens". I´ve been meaning to build myself a camera, but have not done it yet.. But after seeing these pictures again I must!

Chris Ellinger writes:
"I first learned about zone plate photography sometime in 2002
from an article in The Pinhole Journal.
I constructed a zone plate camera and soon realized that it produced images that I have wanted to make for many years - images with a certain balance of realism and abstraction, and a glow that hints of energies beneath the surface of things.
After four years, I am still absolutely intrigued by zone plate photography, and make each exposure with a sense of anticipation and discovery."
