Welcome to the annual Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day exhibition, where you will discover 1815 images realized by as many different pinhole photographers from 52 countries!
All the photographs in this extraordinary collection share two common characteristics:
They also share an additional and less formal characteristic: the sincere enthusiasm of their creators who, by participating in this collective event, shared individual visions and techniques. Hence the amazing diversity of subjects, cameras, techniques and photographic materials combined in this exhibit!
- they are lensless photographs.
- they were made on April 24, 2005.
Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day was established to celebrate the joy of simple creativity using the medium of lensless photography. We want to show that, from a device as simple as a cardboard box with a tiny hole, you can create inspiring images. Minimal technology and cost: Maximum Passion and Sensitivity!
Enjoy your first visit, offer yourself the pleasure of returning here from time to time, and invite your friends to have a look. We sincerely hope that you will be 'hooked' and that before the next edition of WPPD, you will join the active international community of pinhole photographers.
Thanks to all of you, participants and visitors, for partaking of the simple beauty of our world seen through a pinhole.
