Pinhole Litter Project

April 3, 2009 § Leave a comment


A global enviromental art project using Pinhole Photography and mail art.


Participants wanted to take part in a collaborative pinhole project that will help us clean up and re-engage with our surroundings, as well as learn about the art of pinhole photography.

Jamie invites anyone to take part in this collaborative project. He will work with people worldwide to collect discarded drinks cans, which he will convert into home-made pinhole cameras.

Later participants will use these cans to take photographs of the environment they where found in, the aim is to replace litter with a creative vision, the cans are later recycled.

Benefits: The opportunity to take part in a global project that will culminate in your work featuring on the project website and in print as a series of books.

Deadline: Ongoing.
