In 2013, I was invited to participate in the Tsarino Foundation's AiR program, held in the deserted village of Tsarino, Bulgaria. I worked with a pinhole lens and created a typology of sixty walnut shells. Walnut trees were a source of property value and income for Tsarino's previous residents, but having no one to harvest them, they are subject to the local creatures. Each shell acts as a finger print: preserving the impression while maintaining its own, unique identity.
