It’s fascinating to think that a simple wooden box can be used to capture fleeting moments and immortalize them in prints. Photography enthusiast Benjamin Postlewait captures these moments and places in his life that is worth seeing as he takes on pinhole photography and uses it to capture soothing and euphoric photos.
The workings are simple, get a lightproof box, punch a hole in it and point it to the subject you’d like to capture. Simple enough, right? Well, that’s what it looks like in Benjamin Postlewait’s pinhole photographs. The scenery just seems to flow into the photographs and capture the passing time in light sensitive film. Pinhole photography is a difficult area to master itself and the results are equally difficult not to notice.
Postlewait sets up his wooden pinhole box camera and enjoys the view while his camera does the same. Only, the images preserved in time are captured in film and so the beauty of the results arrive with patience. His pinhole photographs show vibrant colors and amazing perspectives that we usually have the luxury to do with our viewfinders. His soothing stills is easy to the eyes – a breather from the usual upbeat tempo in action photography. The seemingly small aperture of his wooden box camera gives us a look into what happens when we just sit still and revel in the moment as we do with our own photographs.
