Action against refraction!

Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day will be happening all around the world on Sunday April the 30th

Now in its 17th year this free event encourages everyone to: find wonder in light and the world around us, wash away the consumerist ‘more focal lengths more fun’ mentality and discover the beauty and wonder of creating an image through a simple hole, a mere 2301 years after Aristotle said ‘WΩw, that’s CΩΩl’!

Last year 2599 people from 77 countries spent time on the last Sunday in April contemplating the world around them using the beauty and simplicity of a small hole.

Their favourite pinhole image taken on the day was loaded onto the gallery at http://pinholeday.org/gallery/2016/ , joining the 37,741 images on the site from the previous 16 years’ events. The only rule is that it’s taken on pinhole day with a lensless camera.

Have a day this year embracing unpredictability, accepting the accident, and create a unique world uninhibited by the distortion of a lens.

Get your: scout group, school, camera club, family, college, friends to take part. Submit an event announcement or register your group at http://pinholeday.org/events/?pid=addEvent

Previsualise originality and fun!

Build a camera, make a hole, be part of something Huge (through something very small!) Have a day this year embracing unpredictability, accepting the accident and create a unique world uninhibited by the distortion of a lens.
