2001 cum laude graduate Nicole Goloskov of Chadds Ford, Pa., has produced “Camera Obscura,” a video portrait of Rockland, Maine, photographer Chris Pinchbeck, to be broadcast at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, June 30, and Sunday, July 1, as part of the Maine Public Broadcasting television series “True North.” The weekly program examines individuals and events that make Maine unique.
Goloskov’s 30-minute documentary focuses on Pinchbeck’s unusual pinhole camera, a trailer, that he drives from location to location in search of photographs. Except for a small hole notched into the vehicle, the trailer is completely dark. Pinchbeck projects his images on the back of the trailer wall, covered with light sensitive 9 x 12 foot paper pinned to the wall.
A sociology major at Bates, Goloskov started out as an intern for Maine Public Broadcasting in her sophomore year. She then landed a job as a production assistant that evolved into the opportunity to produce “Camera Obscura” in her senior year. Goloskov intends to pursue a career in documentary film.
