A pinhole camera is, essentially, a lens-less camera, and can be made of practically anything that can be kept light tight and have a hole poked through it; the results can be really phenomenal images using only the sun’s light, some really precise set-up, and a bit of chance.
Check out my piece on the group exibition devoted to pinhole photography, Pinholio at Good Citizen Gallery, on the Temporary Art Review website and see a bible camera, a bra camera, and the winners of the juried pinhole photographs. The gallery is open today and tomorrow, 12-5, and through 17 December. While you’re over on the Temporary’s website, check out James McAnally’s interview with Good Citizen Gallery owner, Andrew James. Happy Weekend!
