Yes, yes. I know know I haven’t posted anything for a while but things have been a little quite of late. So for all of those friends of mine who like pinhole photography (most of who have made their own matchbox pinhole cameras) here’s something for you.

This Sunday (26th April) is Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day and you’re encouraged to go out and get photos using only your pinhole camera. Afterwards you can select your best shots and upload them to the WPPD site (link below).

There’s also a range of events happening – and for those near Huddersfield, a talk at Huddersfield University on the 30th by Jean Daubas with the range strange title of Pinholes, or the Fabulous Destiny of a Tiny Hole…

This lecture will permit us to approach the story of our understanding of what is an image, both by its historical aspects and its scientific, philosophical, and artistic developments. After that, we ‘ll consider pinhole photography under various aspects : origins and technical evolutions, the contemporary « renaissance » of pinhole photography, thoughts about the complexity of relation between reality, images and memory.
