Pinhole day 2014 – Sunday April the 27th 2014.
On the 175th anniversary of the invention of photography, World Pinhole Day celebrates its own 14th anniversary on Sunday April the 27th 2014.
Worldwide pinhole photography day was established to celebrate the joy of simple creativity using the medium of lens less photography.
We are asking all people around the world to join in the day by taking a photograph with a simple camera and uploading their image onto the Pinhole day gallery www.pinholeday.org
The purpose of the day is to discover the wonder of capturing and image through a device as simple as a cardboard box with a small hole. Last year, 3426 pinhole photographers from 75 countries uploaded their image.
The diversity of images will share two common characteristics.
1 They are all lens less photographs
2 They will all be taken on April the 27th 2014
They also share a less formal characteristic: the sincere enthusiasm of their creators who, by participating in this collective event, shared individual visions and techniques. Hence the amazing diversity of subjects, cameras, techniques and materials combined in previous years exhibition.
Minimal technology and cost, maximum passion, sensitivity and wonder!
