Katie Cooke is an artist and photographer who mainly uses pinhole cameras when taking photos. She comes up with these mysterious images that seem to tell a story. Find out more after the break.
Katie Cooke, an artist from Scotland, has come up with different collections for her pinhole photography. She makes use of the traditional and alternative processes for printing photos. Her interest in pinhole photograph started one summer when she was stuck at home while recuperating from a hip replacement. It was hard for her to use her crutches and handle her SLR camera at the same time so she thought of using a pinhole to take photos so she wouldn’t have to hold a camera in her hand.
She sees pinhole photography as how we often build our impression on someone. The exposures that go on for several minutes or even hours can be likened to how we get a glimpse of someone’s personality. We do it over time – not a split second. For some years now, Katie Cooke has been working on portraits and experimenting with movement and stillness. Unlike objects, people create small movements in a span of a minute even when trying to keep still. These are the little things – the quiet conversations — that she tries to capture with her pinhole camera

She talks about her experience as a freelance photographer - and with the New Petzval Lens 85 - in this exclusive interview.
Jungle, home, haven. The same words may apply to both city and nature. Though different they are linked. The city takes after the colors of flowers and animals; people mold their neighborhoods after the shapes of nature. Other similarities are accidental: the fun bit.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Ouagadougou is the capital of Burkina Faso. 1.6 million people live there when 20 years ago there were only 700,000; that is to say, the incredibly quick growth and the stunning density in this city shows today.
Armed with disposable cameras, a number of people affected by homelessness in London trooped out in the streets and captured life from their individual perspectives. That was in July; now, 13 photographs have been selected via public vote and will be featured on the upcoming calendar by Cafe Art, an initiative that "[showcases] artwork created by people affected by homelessness or are socially vulnerable."
