Apart from these, two very interesting exhibitions have been organized with pinhole shots. One entitled “Concrete Landscapes” done by Asier Gogortza who initiated a project to transform old war bunkers in pinhole cameras, giving them an artistic purpose.

The other is a group exhibition featuring Asier Gogortza, Luca Baldassari, Francesco Capponi, Jeremy Cherfas, Lucy Clink, Gianluca Perrone and Samuel Small. Here are some representative photographs of these amazing artists.
