The Pinhegg – My Journey To Build An Egg Pinhole Camera

Since I started pin-holing the world, I have had the strong desire to make a special camera, with the purpose of shooting just one photograph.

To let you understand, the process from the camera to the photograph is the same that ties the baby bird to the egg: the bird grows protected from the shell and when it's ready breaks it and comes out. This is why I decided to create the Pinhegg – An Egg Pinhole Camera.
