"How to Make a Camera out of Anything" presented by the International Center of Photography at Photoville, NYC!
Sunday, July 1, 2012 from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM (EDT)
This workshop takes a quick look at the history, theory, and practice of pinhole photography with an emphasis on the technical relationship between camera-making and image formation. Each participant will leave with a camera (made from one of several objects provided), an image made by that camera, and an understanding of how to make a camera out of anything at all.

The International Center of Photography (ICP) is the world's leading institution dedicated to the practice and understanding of photography in all its forms. Through our exhibitions, educational programs, and community outreach, we offer an open forum for dialogue about the role images play in our culture. ICP was founded in 1974 by Cornell Capa (1918–2008) as a tribute to his brother, legendary war photographer Robert Capa. Since our founding, we have presented more than 500 exhibitions and offered thousands of classes, providing instruction at every level. ICP is a center where photographers can connect to create, understand, and experience photography and where students, educators, and researchers can take advantage of our comprehensive resources and extensive collections.
