Inspiration with Pinhole Maniac – Martin Cheung

Ever since joining a pinhole workshop Martin Cheung’s view on photography has altered. Now he says he has given up the view finder in his photography practice because he no longer believe in the “hunting” action or, “the romanticise photographer role anymore.”

Light Leaks Rumble Winner

As a part of going back to the roots of analogue photography with the pinhole tradition, we have also been celebrating the art of light leaks as well. Lomography upholds that these are not just a fault of early cameras but should be embraced as a stunning effect. You strongly proved this philosophy! Congratulations to our Light Leaks Rumble winner kylewis! Out of over 1,800 submissions you’ve got yourself enough Piggy Points for the Special Light Leaks / Pinhole Bundle at the online shop.
