UK pavillion captured with a matchbox pinhole-camera – click to enlarge -


There went something wrong yesterday when I published an unfinished article.
Sorry for that.

So this is the completed one:

After showing these pictures in an older article, I knew there wouldn’t be any chance to do better photos. So I decided to do the opposite, take bad photos…at least concerning the quality. High-tech captured with low-tech. International buildings caught in a pinhole camera made from matchboxes with chinese propaganda prints on them.

Photos taken with the pinhole camera:



To be safe, I decided to take some pictures as well with another camera. also shitty quality and a broken flash, which is always flashing with full power. It was a give-away from Lufthansa and it must be around 15 years old now.

MANY MANY THANKS TO GUNDA AND THE SWISS CONNECTION TO GET ACCESS TO THE EXPO AND SOME PAVILLIONS BEFORE OFFICIAL OPENING!!!
