Pinhole photography is one of the oldest and truest forms of photography. Rather than a lens, a hole is used to project the image onto a light sensitive medium (film or digital). It’s really that simple.
More often than not when you see work from a pinhole image shown in a gallery it is from a home-made camera taken with a sheet of film.
The images you see here are from a modified Phase One P30+. This 32 megapixel digital camera system is normally used because it provides top notch lenses. So it is not without irony that I choose this platform for my latest pinhole project.
32 megapixels worth of soft, ethereal mush. It’s almost insulting to the camera.
