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. The purpose was to sacrifice the camera in the process of photo creation – I wanted the camera to become the 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.

Pigeons and Powerlines Exhibit: Lomographs shown at the CONTACT Photography Festival 2011

Exhibit for the 2011 Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival by Mark Binks was created out the as a way to get inspired by the things one sees in their own surroundings everyday and trying to find something beautiful in the simple things. Shot entirely with Lomography cameras and experimenting with all kinds of different films. The adventure became not just about capturing and image, but in the anticipation of waiting to find out what those images would look like.
