The experience of creating photographs with a pinhole camera belongs to a realm of slowness, simplicity and surprise. Pinhole photography is an unhurried, yet complete, adventure in seeing that encourages participants to discover a world of creativity and imagination where the unexpected replaces fast-paced, expensive and complex technologies. That is, since pinhole cameras have no lenses, shutters, or viewfinders, they are an ideal medium for expressing memories, fantasies and dreams. Participants build their own pinhole cameras and create a body of work on a personally derived theme. Pictures are created on black and white photo paper and processed in the darkroom. Option to scan the photographs.

Alessandra Capodacqua, born in Naples, lives and works in Florence, Italy.

A graduate in European Languages and Literatures, Alessandra is a photographer, a curator, and a lecturer in photography at New York University NYU Florence.

She works with a variety of devices, from pinhole cameras to smartphones, and since the early 90s her self-portraits have delved into questions of identity and gender roles. Her photographs are shown nationally and internationally and are in private and public collections, including the Galleria degli Uffizi in Florence and the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris.

Alessandra has curated exhibitions and organized festivals of photography internationally. She is regularly invited as portfolio reviewer and as juror for International Photo Awards and Prizes.

Since 2015 she has coordinated the Gabriele Basilico Prize for Landscape and Architecture Photography. In 2018 she became strategic advisor and curator for the Collezione Donata Pizzi, a private collection that includes the works of more than 70 Italian women photographers and artists. She co-curated the widely reviewed exhibition Resistance and Sensibility: Collezione Donata Pizzi in 2020 at the Fotografie Forum Frankfurt.
