As the official site host in New York City, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the ancient image-making process and join photographers around the world in making pinhole photographs as part of this international event that promotes and celebrates the art of pinhole photography.

The Alice Austen House and Staten Island Makerspace will host an afternoon of photographic activities and will provide materials, darkroom facilities and offer professional guidance from photographers. Each participant may take one pinhole photograph for FREE. Additional exposures can be purchased for $5.00. Participants will process their photographs in a "pop-up" darkroom.
