Pinhole Photography Day

Join us for a pinhole photography outing to Tumbleweed Park and the Arizona Railway Museum for Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day on Sunday, April 28. This event is an opportunity to enjoy this fun location, meet other pinhole photographers, and of course, make beautiful images!

Anyone, anywhere in the world, who makes a pinhole photograph on the last Sunday in April can upload it to Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day website where it will become part of the annual Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day. 

Tumbleweed Park and the Arizona Railway Museum feature park and playground landscapes, old train cars and engines, pedestrian traffic, and more! The Railway Museum requires a $5 donation for entrance.

We will provide maps with points of interest highlighted at our meet-up spot (TBD).

When you’ve run out of film or memory for your camera, meet back up with us for a potluck BBQ! Art Intersection will provide the meat for BBQ and drinks. 

Please send an email to info@artintersection.com to let us know you’re coming, what you can bring for the potluck, and we’ll keep you up to date with info about the day.

Pinhole cameras come in all shapes and sizes – all you need is a light-tight box with a tiny hole, and some kind of light-sensitive film or paper. Purchase one like the pinhole Holga above, or make your own with materials from your recycling bin!

Pinhole cameras employ the same lens-less technology as the Camera Obscura, pictured here
