Pinhole photography is lensless photography. A tiny hole replaces the
lens. Light passes through the hole; an image is formed in the camera.

The pinhole camera has no “lens,” per se. The tiny fixed aperture creates a soft infinite focal plane, allowing the “feeling” of the landscape to come through. Where digital photography is like good nonfiction, sharp and detailed, pinhole photography somehow has the profound emotional honesty, the subjective truth of a great novel. Each image carries with it a story, or many different stories.

With the pinhole camera, Cartier-Bresson’s instructive phrase—the decisive moment, referring to the fraction of a second in which a photo should be taken—turns into the decisive minute or minutes. Patience is the greatest virtue when working with these rudimentary cameras.

On this page there are projects and pinhole-camera’s which I work with.
