Hegemon’s work revolves around the concept of immediate memory of happiness. Capturing memories when they are born, photographing the retinal persistence, halfway between reality, memories and dreams. My latest series are made with digital pinhole photography to illustrate this persistence of vision and memory, between blur and sharpness, between photography and painting. The pinhole camera is a simple camera that provide an image by passing light through a tiny hole for the lens. This technique also called “Camera obscura” (dark room) was invented in Persia around the year 1000, and is widely used by artists, especially from the Renaissance. In 1514 Leonardo da vinci said :”Leaving the images of illuminated objects penetrate through a small hole in a very dark room then you’ll catch these images on a white sheet placed in this room”. In a way associate a pinhole and a digital camera is a pure anachronism. This historical paradox make photography and painting closer by obtaining this very particular rendering of a technically sharp picture with less details, skies and skins that seems to have been painted with a brush.
