Workshop 1

🌎 Wood Green Library, London

🗓️ 31st October 2023

📸 We installed a Camera Obscura at Wood Green Library. The camera obscura is the precursor to the camera, it is also known as a pinhole image. We started the workshop seeing the world upside down, then went on to build, shoot & develop unique pinhole images in the darkroom.

Workshop 2 

🌎 All Good Bookshop, London

🗓️ 13th November 2023

📸 We created “Awfullogrammes” at a workshop led by @justin_quinnell our great inspiration. We used flash guns, pinhole cameras and extreme close up compositions. We developed the photographs in our pop-up darkroom. After the workshop in just over an hour we heard Justin’s fascinating talk, ‘Aristotle’s Hole’ : the Science, 500 million year history and the immense variety of contemporary approaches to pinhole photography. It was an amazing day!

Workshop 3

🌎 Shaftesbury Hall, London

🗓️ 4th December 2023

📸 We set-up our pop-up darkroom in Bowes Park. Participants built their own individual pinhole cameras and created unique pinhole images around the station. Bowes Park railway station was first opened by GNR in 1880 (36 years after David Brewster first describe the pinhole camera in 1856!). We are grateful to North London Samaritans, who own Shaftesbury Hall - an amazing community venue @shaftesburyhall
