Pinholes

There’s always something alluring about a pinhole photograph. They don’t record hard facts, but if you want to capture opening your eyes after sleeping on a beach, or the line between dreams and reality, sometimes a pinhole image is the way to go.

These are all on film, mostly taken with a homemade “BiCam” which has the pinhole on the back.

This means the film is shot through the “wrong” side, resulting in “redscale” images (with a pronounced red cast). In this method of photography the latitude available with random exposures and different emulsions generates images ranging from red hot flames to dreamy earth tones.
