Pinhole Camera Workshops


Winnipeg Folk Festival Art and Animation Program 2015

In the summer of 2015, Natalie Baird and I facilitated Pinhole Camera Workshops at the Winnipeg Folk Festival.


Everyone who came to build cameras chose a “camera body” from a collection of recycled tins, wooden boxes, or other light-tight containers generously donated by Winnipeg’s ArtsJunktion and our friends and family. While building the cameras we discussed some of the science behind the optics of pinhole photography and the chemistry of darkroom photography.

Participants went on to uniquely capture the essence of the modern music festival experience through the non-existent “lens” of a hand-made pinhole camera!

Thank you to the Winnipeg Folk Festival, Rainbow Trout Festival, Art City, and ArtsJunktion.
