Pinhole Photographs

Using a pinhole camera is like looking through a keyhole at a secret world. The perspective can shift and change depending on the camera used and how it is located during the exposure. The element of time becomes part of the image as the film or paper is exposed for seconds, minutes or even hours. Any enclosed space can be turned into a pinhole camera, from a mint tin to a warehouse. The concept of the final image as the object of interest doesn’t always apply when the camera itself becomes more involved in the statement that is being made.

If you are a pinhole photographer, take part in Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day on the last Sunday of April each year.
