Francesco Capponi turns food into pinhole cameras
Pinhole or pinhole photography, for those of you who have not heard of the subject, is a technique that allows you to capture images with rudimentary equipment, cameras that can be built with few materials, just a housing, and a sheet with a very thin hole, of where its name comes from, which means needle hole.
Fascinating may be the word that best defines the work of Francesco Capponi, a photographer who has transformed some foods to create pinhole cameras. If I tell you that he has built them with the shell of an egg in the first case, and with a pinion, in the second, surely you will find it difficult to believe me, but nothing better than taking a look at his personal page on Lomography (at the bottom of these lines) to see it first hand.
A small portion of photographic film is housed at the bottom of both cameras, capturing the image that is projected through the smallest hole, being captured in a rudimentary photograph, which, given the characteristics of the camera in question, constitutes an amazing miracle.
