One of my favorite things about pinhole is that it can capture a ‘while’, not just a fraction of a second. It’s a mini story, it’s something happening.
I made myself two selfportraits with an evident movement, a change, two moments in the same image. They turned more narrative than a ‘normal’ photo, so I decided to put them in context, more than the camera captured and complete the story.
I used analogue photoshop: BRUSHES, ACRYLICPAINT, CANVAS, MARKERS and… VOILÁ! Welcome to the PINKROOM and the BLUEROOM, come on in:
The afternoon of April 27, 2014 was spent on a Langley farm in Canada taking pictures with a homemade paint can pinhole camera, celebrating World Pinhole Photography Day. I am akula, a high school photography teacher, and this is why pinhole photography works for me.

Justin Quinnell’s expertise when it comes to pinhole wizardry is unquestionable. This photographer and lecturer from Bristol, United Kingdom, has crafted the most unusual of pinhole projects, from installing cameras onto ships cruising around the Caribbean to taking photos of his kids being born from inside his mouth. One other project that he is known for is being able to make a pinhole camera from a soda can. Watch the video below and learn how!
You might remember experimental philosopher Jonathon Keats for the CenturyCamera, his ambitious project which involved installation of 100 ultra-long-exposure cameras in and around Berlin, Germany "to continuously document 100 years of municipal growth and decay for scrutiny and judgment by future generations" between 2014 and 2114. But today, Keats goes a step further and begins yet another groundbreaking and unprecedented project with the Millennium Camera.
