Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day
Sunday, April 29 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Represent Black Mountain on Pinhole Photo Day 2018
Join photographer Lynette Miller for Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day from 1-4pm on Sunday, April 29 at the Black Mountain Center for the Arts located at 225 W. State Street.
Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day is an annual international event, which according to the pinhole day website is created to promote and celebrate the art of pinhole photography. The organization encourages people throughout the world to take some time off from the technological world by making a pinhole photograph, and then to share their vision and the unusual beauty of this historical process.
Lynette Miller has been facilitating this fun for the whole family for many years. She was an instructor of photography at A-B Tech from 2006 to 2015, a visiting instructor at Western Carolina University and has curatorial experience throughout the region. She has held numerous workshops and lectures to share her love and insight into the art of photography with the community.
Visitors can spend as little as 15 minutes to the full three hours choosing from a wide variety of homemade, beautiful pinhole cameras and receiving instruction on the very simple, almost magical process that was discovered in the 1600s. Participants will be guided in the necessary steps to create a photograph and then can wait to see the developed results. Images will then be downloaded to the Worldwide Pinhole Photography site to join images from around the world.
This event will be held rain or shine. No experience is necessary. Materials will be provided, but Miller is always looking for light-tight boxes or tins to make into cameras. This free event takes place on the lower back level of the Black Mountain Center for the Arts. For more information call 828-669-0930 or visit pinholeday.org or www.blackmountainarts.
