Open Door: LAPC Workshops
Pinhole Camera Workshop
with Ky Lewis
Sat 3 Jun, 14.00-17.00
Pinhole Camera, Anthony Carr
Workshop participants will be able to construct their own pinhole camera from a container of their choice, we will provide containers if you don't have one. Participants will also learn how to load their pinhole cameras with photographic paper and calculate the right exposure times. They will leave the workshop with a unique paper negative.
Ky Lewis is a fine art photographer, living in London for over 25 years. Having worked in design and illustration she now concentrates on making images via photographic methods. Her images continue to use analogue processes with little post production, the images you see are what was on the negative, created in camera using either the most basic pinholes or plastic “Toy” cameras or even without lenses by contact methods.
Creating pinhole images and images without lenses using the sun has become a passion. Her pinhole cameras are often made out of simple waste items such as old tins, film pots, boxes and the like, from such disposable items come dreamy images, resonant of past memories. Lewis also teaches art, printmaking and photography sharing her knowledge of these processes with children on long term projects such as Solargraphy and Lumen printing.
