Pinhole Photography Day

Join us for a pinhole photography outing to Margaret T. Hance Park and the Japanese Friendship Garden in Phoenix for Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day on Sunday, April 30. This event is an opportunity to enjoy this fun location, be creative, meet other pinhole photographers, and of course, make beautiful images!

Anyone, anywhere in the world making 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. 

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, you can bring something to share.

There is an admission charge to the Japanese Friendship Garden of $10 online or $12 at the gate. It is recommended to purchase early and online as there are a limited number of tickets available.

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.

Holga Pinhole Camera


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
