April 28, 2013, marked Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day (WPPD), an international event created to promote and celebrate the historical photographic process of pinhole photography.
As part of the celebrations the RayKo Center held the opening reception of their ‘4th Biennial Juried Pinhole Photography Show’ & WPPD Activities on April 28. Giant chromogenic prints of upside down negative cities in glowing red, tiny blurred seascapes printed in blue, and distorted figures sprawled across an orb-like foreign landscape are just some of the things people can expect from the exhibition.
Featured artist, Jo Babcock will be exhibiting a selection of his invented cameras along with his pinhole images. Babcock has created pinhole cameras from suitcases, Shinola tins, coffee pots, bowling ball cases, refrigerator boxes and even vans!
The exhibition will be on in the main gallery until May 25, 2013. You can also view a massive 1182 image gallery by photographers from over 59 different countries at the online Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day exhibition.
