Meghan Duda creates atmospheric recordings of space and time with a collection of handmade pinhole cameras. She was born in western Massachusetts and raised on the South Carolina coast. After earning her bachelor degree in Architecture from Virginia Tech in 2005 she began traveling the country photographing vernacular architecture. Settling in Fargo, North Dakota in 2007 she was struck by the surrounding landscape and her photographic focus shifted to experimental landscape photography. It was while pursuing an MFA at the University of North Dakota that she built her first handmade camera which she named the Trailer Obscura - a 5’ x 8’ pinhole camera on wheels that she uses to make large atmospheric recordings of the prairie. Duda continues to construct cameras as a way to explore vantage point and perspective and to express the many ways in which the camera perceives light.
