Visitors take part in World Pinhole Day workshops at the National Science and Media Museum

World Pinhole Day workshops at the National Science and Media Museum

Sunday 30 April was World Pinhole Day, and to mark the occasion the National Science and Media Museum teamed up with the Bradford School of Art to explore the world of pinhole photography. Over 50 visitors had their portrait taken using a pinhole camera, while a smaller group made their own pinhole cameras from coffee tins and cereal boxes before actually taking a photo with them (see example below by Salma Aleem).

Students from the School of Art were on hand to share their knowledge of pinhole photography with visitors, having just completed their own pinhole commissions for the Poetics of Light exhibition here at the Museum. One of the students commented, ‘I didn’t realise I knew so much about pinhole photography until I started explaining it to one of the workshop participants!’
