You may have recollections of making pinhole cameras at school or university. Perhaps, like me, you remember being a bit confused, not entirely sure why you were being told to put paper into a plastic cup and leave it outside before spending time making a smudgy photo that you can’t quite make out. Well those days are OVER. Not only does Kelly Angood’s much anticipated project, The Pop Up Pinhole Camera look like a lovely classic Videre camera which follows on from the success of her previous pinhole Hasselblad project, but it also produces very high quality, two-fingers-up to Instagram, pinhole photographs of which you can see some examples below.
The project’s a Kickstarter, and the best part is she’s already gone way over the £15,000 goal. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy one off her when the time comes though, or perhaps donate some money so she has the means to create more very, very cool stuff. You can see a little more about the pleasingly handmade process in the video below.
