Artist's Description

This shot was taken using a pinhole camera made out of a Milo tin.
A pinhole camera is a camera without a glass lens.
The tin is fully blacked out and a pin sized, extremely tiny hole is made.
The shutter of a pinhole camera usually consists of a hand operated flap of some light-proof material to cover and uncover the pinhole so as to not expose the film or paper inside the tin.
Pinhole cameras require much longer exposure times than conventional cameras because of the small aperture; typical exposure times can range from 5 seconds to hours or days.
The film used here is Agfachrome (transparency/positive) RSX II 50 ASA, 120 roll film and is placed inside the Milo tin in complete darkness of course.
The location is the corner of Brunswick & Johnston Streets, Fitzroy, where the Provincial Hotel stands.
Warning: absolutely no Milo was discarded to make this pinhole camera.

oh yeah, please view it large.
