Everyone’s made a pinhole camera as part of a school project, but photographers David Janesko and Adam Donnelly have evolved (or devolved) the rudimentary technology in a fascinating direction with their “Site Specific Cameras” project. Upon choosing a landscape to photograph, the photographers will begin to forage materials from around the area and create a pinhole camera out of logs, sand, sticks, dirt and anything else they are able to find. The aperture is made using an object that already has a preexisting hole, be it a leaf or a washed-up piece of fabric. “The physical components of the landscape, feedback into the character of the camera and the final photograph,” Donnelly explains. “The cameras are also large enough for one of us to fit into. We act as the mechanical parts of the camera, like the shutter and film advance.” Watch the camera construction process in the above video, and head to their Indiegogo page to fund the project.
