All along these pages, you will learn how to build your pinhole camera, from the simplest model to the most sophisticated.
By focusing on the "nuts and bolds" approach, by keeping its construc-tion accessible to anyone, while maintening its wonderful random specificity.
You will get amazing results, right from your first self-made box.

Forget about repeating failures (one decent picture, followed by ten all-black or all-white prints) without being able to identify the root of the problem.
Thanks to an easy step-by-step approach that does'nt require you to know anything about photography. (just have a look to the table of contents).

Allows children to take part in the process, as my niece Nora did at the age of 8, only slightly helped by her uncle, when she designed a little book of twelve photographs telling the story of her favorite heroes: the Trolls (see the two pictures opposite).

I have organized many workshops on pinhole cameras.
Two things have always impressed me: the first is the speed at wich absolutely everyone picks up on this technique, and the surprisingly results that everyone obtains.
The second is the creative and imaginative freedom that this simple process allows for, combined with an uncommon economy of means, in our age of waste and perpetual praise of economic growth.

Due to the narrowness of the opening trough which the light comes in to imprint the light sensitice surface, the pinhole camera requires very long exposures: they vary from a dozen of seconds to a dozen of minutes, they can even last a few hours.

It's a great way of getting back in touch with the sensation of time passing.
Things change, move - the sun, the clouds, the wind in the grass - the men and women of whom we are "taking a picture". but rather that the instant snapshot, it's a thirty or forty second stretch of time ...

Pinhole camera photography yields an outstanding quality of depth of fields.

It completely breaks with the conventions of photography by blurring the usual reading of successive planes from foreground to back-ground.
Then come the serendipitous accidents, the random, the lack of view-finder, the role of intuition ...
