Pinhole Photography Festival

Today Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Gardens starts hosting the Pinhole Photography Festival. It’s the first festival of its kind in Edinburgh and celebrates the art of photography without using a lens.

The simple technique works with a tiny hole in the camera, which replaces the lens. Light passes through the hole; an image is formed in the camera. The festival gives current pinhole photographers a chance to showcase their work.

The festival is designed for beginners and people who are unfamiliar with this art as well as experienced photographers. Daily workshops and discussions are offered to give an introduction to this simple but effective kind of photography.

Visitors can go see the free festival until 17th March.
