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.
