We were honored to have in attendance at Sound & Vision our friends from The Mobile Pinhole Project. If you don’t know about them you do now. What they’re doing is really cool. They drive around in a Smurf-blue Toyota Previa that’s been converted into a mobile pinhole camera, the “VanCam,” and visit with youngsters in neighborhoods around Los Angeles, giving them access to the visual arts in a very immediate and very impactful way. They provided us with a taste of their workshop at Sound & Vision. You climb inside a pitch-black chamber in the back of the VanCam and Jonas narrates you through the workings of pinhole photography as the whole process occurs in front of you. It’s a powerful experience on many levels. Here, we share with you some pinhole exposures from the VanCam.
Be sure to check them out online and contribute to the cause if you can.
