Moni Smith.

Moni encompasses everything I believe to be true of pinhole photography in her work. Her and her practice are inherently innocent, her work evokes a sense of simplicity.

“I use my pinhole camera to tell the story of my world.”

I asked Moni why she does what she does. She told me that this quote, by dancer and choreographer Martha Graham, explains why; “There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.”

New Beginnings.


Thanks so much for taking a quick peek at the new site :)

I’ve been away for quite a while now. I moved across the country, spent months working on a visa to ensure I could stay where I am, and got married to celebrate!

The good news is that I’m now free to relax and begin developing the mountains of film I’ve been shooting over the past year. And of course, get my teeth sunk into some of your beautiful pinhole work.

Some of you may know that I’d previously been working on a publication to showcase some of the work I’ve seen being produced across the world. Sadly, this to took a backseat, and I’ll keep it there for now using the work I did on it to get this blog up and running. 

For now, I’ll be littering your Instagram and Twitter with lots of lovely imagery for your eyeballs and brains to enjoy. But keep your eyes peeled because I’ll be kicking this blog into shape very shortly!

Below are a few of my own pinhole snaps, captured recently in rural NSW, Australia!

Thanks again,

Dan @ The Pinhole Society
