The Pinhole Photography of Thomas Hudson Reeve: "The modern camera is a wonderful thing, but it's nice to remember how simple the mechanism can be. You can strip away the technology until there is little left but the abstraction on which the machine is based. A simple manipulation of space, a few materials, and a couple of hand tools and the magic (physics) is at your fingertips without sophisticated engineering. To simplify these cameras as much as possible I made them out of the 11x14 inch photo-paper itself."
