There is something beautiful in the simplicity of photography and its concept of focusing light to present an image. That simplicity is seen no more clearly than in the camera obscura. As such it has been a device that has fascinated me since I was a teenager. The idea to miniaturise the camera obscura and fix the image with film gave the world the pinhole camera.
In 2009, I bought a Leica camera cap with a .24mm pinhole lasered in and began taking a collection of digital pinhole photographs using the M8. In a 2 year period, my short-lived art collaboration, We Sink Ships used many of them. I dug back into my ‘archive’ to find some of my favourites, so now I’ve presented them here.
