Bethany was one of my fellow students at the artschool in Utrecht, the HKU (in the Netherlands). Bethany was and is extremely talented. She can do everything.

Draw, paint, etc. In our last year at the academy, she started with her “pinhole” photography. She made really small boxes with mirrors inside. And she made her own pinhole cameras, which she put inside her selfmade worlds. These cameras where covered with mirrors also, otherwise you could recognize them as cameras. They would become a part of the picture, so she had to disguise them.

With this technique, it looks like we are watching large en high rooms, as if we are in some kind of cathedral. We are part of the picture.

Nowadays her pinhole pictures are far more complicated. And Bethany also makes beautiful short animations, like “Red-End”.
