The Great Transatlantic Pinholga Filmswap Project

Apple Tracks - Pinhole Swap

A few years ago my buddy Monica came up with a wonderful idea. She hatched a plan that would allow her to combine the random results of a film swap with the challenging shooting conditions of pinhole photography. The idea was brilliantly simple, she shoots a roll of film with her pinholga then rewinds the film in that camera and sends it to the next participant. I was asked if I wanted to get involved and I instantly said yes. I love how these projects work and had participated in the traveling Yashica project last year.

The pinholga arrived preloaded with the film ready to be reshot on frame number one. The beauty of both people using the same camera is that you can be pretty sure that the shots will line up giving a great double exposure. I was traveling to Amsterdam for WPPD so I shot a second roll and had it ready to go in the camera when I handed it to Monica in person. This post contains some of the shots from both those efforts. My first round was shot mostly in Belturbet County Cavan and the Sally Gap in wicklow. The second round was mostly in the Botanical gardens in Dublin.
