The Pinhole Project invites you to view their 2013 photos of the people, art and events from this year's Burning Man festival. Using 33 gallon barrels, aluminum can lenses, and a dark room in a shipping container at Media Mecca, the Pinhole Project spent the week at Burning Man creating striking images from their analog technology. For one night only, they will present their favorite large-scale negatives (the image that forms in the camera), digitally-created positives, as well as DIY prints and composites. Viewing modern creations via antique methods, Pinhole Project hopes you will be thrilled and intrigued by this well-known and powerful art form.
Since 1999, a group of enthusiastic pinhole photographers has been harvesting interaction, preserving history, and challenging conventional assumptions about photography at Burning Man. Our aim is to document the people, art and events at Burning Man each year, while we teach others to explore their creativity through the hundred-year-old technique of pinhole photography.
Satellite66 has sought to enrich the Central Market District neighborhood with art exhibitions dedicated to showcasing emerging contemporary local artists. We are completing our business in the neighborhood and are donating the use of the gallery for short term art installations, workshops, or project space. This opportunity is available through the completion of our lease at the end of October. Please contact Skot at [email protected]
