Camera Obscura

Give me a light-safe box. With a tiny little hole. Some photo paper. Sunlight. Time and ideas. These are the essentials for an camera obscura, the pinhole camera.

These pictures were taken at my school in art class, with a selfmade camera obscura. Then I developed the pictures myself in the photo lab. It was a great experience, because the whole process is just very intuitive. You never know if the exposure lenght was enough or too much, if the picture will turn out just right or overexposed. It’s a constant test-and-fail phase. But when a picture comes out just how you want it to, that’s the best feeling! Because after all, it’s more you, more your work than a digital picture could ever be.
