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!

    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?
