Today’s feature is a haunting piece captured by Ingrid Budge.

Ingrid made this image using a homemade coffeecan pinhole camera. The paper is about 50 years old and therefore needs longer exposures. This was a 7 minute exposure, developed in Ilford chemicals, then scanned and inverted.
We chose to highlight Ingrid’s photo because of how well it shows the experimentalist nature of pinhole photography. The practice naturally lends itself to push the photographer to say “What if?” In this case, what if you used extremely old photo paper as your negative?
