Last Sunday 24th April was World Pinhole Photography Day. Throughout the world exhibitions, workshops and competitions were organized to celebrate the most basic form of photography (pinhole=photography without a lens).
In India, one of my images (an all-night self-portrait) made it to the invite for Me Monarch, an exhibition of pinhole self portraits simultaneously held in Goa Center for Alternative Photography & Ravi Photo Gallery.

I am now having some fun preparing my forthcoming digital pinhole workshop with Photography Course London. I have to admit I am finding great satisfaction in defacing my brand-new-top-of-the-range DSLR with gaffer tape and bits of drinks' cans (a strange sense of revenge perhaps...?). First results seem promising, full of flare, distortions and wonderful 'mistakes'.
