Firstly, I’d like to share something that my dearest cousin and typewriter friend sent me in her swell 12 page zine/letter.
PINHEGG!! – Francesco Capponi
“Since I started pin-holing the world, I have had the strong desire to make a special camera, with the purpose of shooting just one photograph.The purpose was to sacrifice the camera in the process of photo creation – I wanted the camera to become the photograph. To let you understand, the process from the camera to the photograph is the same that ties the baby bird to the egg: the bird grows protected from the shell and when it’s ready breaks it and comes out. This is why I decided to create the Pinhegg – An Egg Pinhole Camera.“
What an incredible idea! I adore originality and creativity and this form of pinhole photography is so interesting. The idea that in order to see the image, you must destroy the camera is fascinating. Death is birth, destruction is creation. Thoughts?
Here is some amazing artwork by Fred Eversley, a sculptor/glass artist.
Have also been interested in leaf art recently, the patterns and colours are fantastic!
ANd then all this talk of leaves led me to one of my favourite films of all time – Hero.
The cinematography is STUNNING.
