Fabricated Cameras and Contemporary Pinhole Photography
Based on an idea by Benjamin Wooten
The Artist / Inventors - Proponents of the Pinhole

This exhibition is one of the most extraordinary I've put together and was a fortunate surprise. After meeting pinhole camera maker Benjamin Wooten in Halifax at a gallery opening in November 2011 we discussed the idea for bringing together examples of contemporary pinhole cameras and the photographs made with them. I sent around an email and seven of the leading camera makers graciously provided examples of their works - and quite a variety of cameras it is - Band-Aid boxes, gas masks, human skulls, complex underwater contraptions, cardboard boxes, ceramic cameras, ammo boxes, human blood, an RV, a VW camper and a wheelie bin.
Thanks to you all - You create tangible visions.
