Nick Dvoracek : the Populist in action

Monday, May 25th, 2009

frogpond Originally uploaded by ndvoracek. Nick Dvoracek has been knocking them all the way out of the park and into the next town with the Populist, the little cardboard camera that can. (And this is another mighty example of his WPPD images.) Nick’s designed a 35mm version, a 120 version, even a stereoscopic one, all [...]

Francesco Capponi: birdhouses, pine nuts, and chess

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

Ritratto ideale di Duchamp e Man Ray by Francesco Capponi Francesco Capponi makes glorious project-specific pinhole cameras, where the camera and the photos from them are part of the same work. How can you not love a pinhole birdhouse with the bird’s eye view, looking out through the round door, pinhole origami where the camera [...]

Two Frogs in Ice by Mark Tweedie I am completely in love with some of Mark Tweedie’s pinhole work, particularly the Still Life in Ice series he made last winter, freezing things into blocks of ice.

Nick Shuval-Sergeev
