  Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day

Press Release
Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day to be Celebrated April 24, 2005

Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day (WPPD), a global event celebrating
the fantasy, art, fun and experience of lensless photography, will
occur on April 24, 2005. All photographers around the world will be
invited to take a picture with a pinhole camera during the 24 hours of
Sunday April 24 and upload it to http://www.pinholeday.org . A photo
by each artist will become part of the international Web gallery on
the WPPD site. The event is open to all photographers throughout the
world, to every no-lens photography aficionado and to those who have
never practised this creative and fun technique before. Pinhole photos
are taken without any lens but simply through a small hole, about the
size of the period at the end of a sentence. Photos can be made using
cameras made from ordinary stuff such as shoe boxes, peeled tomato
cans or tea boxes. An increasing number of people are approaching and
showing more and more interest in the exciting practice of pinhole
photography. In 2001, 291 pinhole photographers from 24 countries took
part in the web exhibition. In 2004, a good 1512 from 43 countries.
Joint efforts and individual's skills allow the organization of
numerous events, both big and small, and even those foreign to this
peculiar world of photography can take part. Sunday April 24 will see
many events organized in every corner of the earth, with meetings,
displays, stages, courses and collective practices focused on pinhole
photography. Special attention is devoted to young generations and
schools. WPPD stems from the spontaneous work of a group of volunteers
scattered worldwide and coordinated by an international group formed
by Tom Miller (USA - Team leader), Paolo Aldi (Italy), Nick Dvoracek
(USA), Gregg Kemp (USA), Tom Persinger (USA), Rosanne Stutts (USA) and
Wolfgang Thoma (Belgium). More information and the full programme
(constantly updated) can be found at http://www.pinholeday.org .
