Pinhole PhotographyArturo Talavera

Making pinhole photography is a way of reconsidering things in a different dimension. It provides me with a fresh outlook and it allows me to dwell on the extended time that pinhole images afford.

To see through a pinhole camera is to learn to know light, that natural light which we are accustomed to see in a logical and analogical way. My gaze can take a break and the pinhole, that small orifice that shines light where there was darkness before, allows me infinite visual creative possibilities.

On the other hand, aside from being able to buy a manufactured camera, the possibility of building and rebuilding one gives me the satisfaction of going back to an eternal childhood.
