Egg Pinhole Camera

Francesco Capponi’s “Pinhegg” is an egg pinhole camera that also becomes the photograph! I love the idea that the camera is only good for one shot and must be sacrificed to reveal the image!

  • This is absolutely awesome! I’d love to see a bunch of these with the finished image in some kind of installation. The possibilities are endless…

  • That is super cool!

  • This is mindblowing.

  • The idea is truly awesome. I may have done it on the outside of the egg, to give it more of a Fabergé egg look but this is already great!

  • The technique and its outcome are stunning. I wonder whether or not it is possible to use something else than an egg?

Musician Anna Bulbrook (The Bulls, Airborne Toxic Event, and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros) recently launched GIRLSCHOOL, a Los Angeles-based music festival and collective that celebrates female voices. A portion of proceeds from each event go to a girl-positive organization, and this year’s festival (Jan 27-29) will support Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls LA, a 501c3 social justice organization using loud music to nurture self-esteem and self-expression in young girls.

Society6 has joined forces with GIRLSCHOOL to pair up musicians and artists to create visuals inspired by the music, to be displayed at the event. See a few more of the collaborations below!
