Worldwide Pinhole Day 2020

Garden of Earthly Delights: a celebration of World Pinhole Day within the back-garden. During the Covid-19 lock-down restrictions, where staying at home had become the new ‘normal’, WWPD2020 presented an opportunity to explore the garden through a series of pinhole lens-less photos. My camera for the day was a beautifully retro ‘Pinhole 100’ plastic box camera manufactured by Polaroid, shooting a mixture of expired stock peel-apart instant type-100 film that is sadly no longer manufactured by Polaroid or Fuji. The garden becomes a magical realm in which to lose oneself and exposures of between 10 to 40 seconds allow for the movement of foliage in the wind to register upon the film, creating visual traces of the ethereal nature of this private space.
