Kirby Cane artist’s pinhole camera exhibition
Sitting patiently with only a pinprick of light shining through darkness she waits for her art to take shape.
Sometimes the wait can be for up to an hour, but the unique result is something she wouldn't change for anything, as Sarah Webster, from Kirby Cane, always chooses a pinhole camera ahead of a modern digital compact.
The 25-year-old mixed-media artist uses the traditional pinhole method as part of her work to create images of the east coast.
However with the camera measuring 8ft by 4ft and needing to be towed by a trailer, it is not for the casual enthusiast.
She said: 'Since graduating from Art school in Canterbury with a degree in Fine Art, I moved back to my roots and I have continued to develop my atmospheric pinhole works.
'This is a combination of early photography and quite literally local mud from the landscape where I take the image. I use mud as my paint.'
The artist, who was brought up in Blythburgh, sits inside her homemade pinhole camera while the unique image is being exposed.

'Some exposures take up to an hour. I have some interesting stories which have happened to me while sitting out in the landscape in a wooden box in almost complete darkness, apart from a pinprick of light shining through,' she said.
Her work is to feature in the Light Works exhibition at Halesworth Gallery, Steeple End from May 26 until June 13, and she will be there on Friday, May 25 to discuss her work.
The exhibition will be open from 11am-5pm weekdays and 2-5pm on Sundays. Admission is free.
