Exhibition Flyer Originally uploaded by Matt Blackcustard. Matt Callow has a new exhibition opening on 5th December, with pinhole pictures of Ypsilanti, (including some of his previous collection of urban textures.) His toy camera stuff is terrific, but it makes me happy that he’s back to working with the pinhole paint cans again and producing [...]

I’d be a little surprised if there’s anyone interested in pinhole photography who has not seen Abelardo Morell’s Camera Obscura series, where vast, empty cities are brought inside quiet rooms. If you’ve not seen them, go. Now.
water | vapour is a stunning set of pinholes, taken around Lake Superior, that are featured in this month’s Black & White Magazine. Ice, clouds, and rocks, shifting between crisp and ethereally misty, on large format film (Polaroid, perhaps, looking at the edges of some of them). They are showing at the Icebox Gallery in [...]
Nancy Breslin has been taking pinhole pictures of most of the meals she’s eaten away from home for the past few years. There’s a small selection in her online gallery, and more from the ongoing series at fotolog.
After Cameron was a project run by the National Museum of Photograpy, Film and Television a couple of years ago. A group of young women took part in a few one day workshops with artist Chris Madge to produce a series of pinhole portraits, then digital negatives, and finally a set of Argyrotype prints. The [...]
The Punctum Collective have an intriguing-sounding exhibition on at the moment, in Newcastle upon Tyne. They’ve been using a caravan as a pinhole camera, taking pictures of North East scenes. They were running workshops in October, but the exhibition is on until 27 November, at the old Walkerville Library. There are some shots of a [...]
This is possibly my absolute favourite series of pinhole photographs: Martha Casanave’s coastal pinholes. They are so sharp you might find it hard to believe they are pinholes at all, except for the endless depth of field, and that indefinable time-shift you get with long exposures. If you’ve not seen them before, please, just go [...]
Jess Originally uploaded by nicolai_g. Nick Grossman’s pinhole tracking shots blow my mind a little more every time I look at them. And I look at them often. The whole series is astonishing. I can’t look at this one without thinking of ‘The Go-Between” because it feels like a lost Edwardian summer.
Roanne Olsen has a rather wonderful article and gallery from her travels with a pinhole camera. I’ve been thinking about how to go about this myself, taking a camera into unfamiliar places, and developing on the road. It looks like I’m in for some soggy bathrooms: Pinhole photography can be like a demanding child whose [...]
The more I look at Isabelle Lousberg‘s pinhole work, the more I love it. This is someone who works slowly, with the long, slow, looping rhythm that really suits pinhole: going back and back again to the same places, and watching them, and trying to find some way of holding the sense of time in [...]
