Useful Resources and Links on Pinhole Photography
I used to maintain a very long list of pinhole resources out on the web when I first put the pinhole gallery. Given the nature of the web and the near impossible task of maintaining a list like that given my obligations I’ve decided to put up what I (and many others) consider to be the most valuable sites having to do with pinhole photography.
Sites to visit.

The Pinhole Resource: Mecca for pinhole photographers. What more can one say?
I examine scenes, objects or figures which have personal importance. Combined with the visual effects of the pinhole, these images transform places, objects or people into icons, representative of everyday entertainments, dreams, childhood memories or religion. As solemn as these topics can sometimes be, there is often an added element of humor which creates a bond of shared humanity between myself, the subjects and the viewer.

Jim sent this to me. He was right. I am interested. The images are great and Jim explains what he did to get the results. Worth a visit and a stay to look around and read.

“Although I created and studied art well before studying chemistry, I owe a large part of my current artistic sensibility to my involvement in science. During my pursuit of chemistry, moments and events gradually acquired names and the world turned into a language of formulas… But once something could be named and broken down it no longer contained its powerful, awe-inspiring mystery. As a result, and despite my continued love of chemistry, I experienced anguish and a desire to restore the enigma of life.”
