Jump back into the roots of photography with one of the most authentic ways to capture a photographic image, the Pinhole Camera. Without a lens but a tiny aperture, the pinhole camera is a simple lightproof box where light passes through the aperture from a scene you are capturing and projects an image on film or photographic paper. Pinhole images are not as sharp as images with a camera lens and the size of the pinhole will determine the sharpness of the final image (smaller pinholes are sharper than larger pinholes). Pinhole photography provides a rich artistic learning experience and skills that can be used in everyday life such as learning by doing and making decisions along the way. You engage in your explorations by capturing what you feel and not necessarily what you see as you will never know exactly what you will get until you see the developed image. History of the pinhole dates back to 300 B.C. and in the 16th century Italian polymath, Leonardo Da Vinci documented a description on how the camera obscure (pinhole camera) works.
"Who would believe that so small a space could contain the image of all the universe? O mighty process! What talent can avail to penetrate a nature such as these? What tongue will it be that can unfold so great a wonder? Verily, none! This it is that guides the human discourse to the considering of divine things. Here the figures, here the colors, here all the images of every part of the universe are contracted to a point. O what a point is so marvelous!" - Leonardo Da Vinci's comments on the "Camera Obscura"
