Pinhole filmswap

This is part of a series of double exposures shot in two different pinhole cameras in two
different countries by two different photographers. The Old Penfold [Alex Yates from
Norwich] came up with this idea of doing pinhole swaps and created a Flickr group
dedicated to the cause; check it out here:

Here’s how the process works. The first shots were taken in Norwich, a town in the East
Anglia region of England near the coast. The film was re-rolled and mailed to me in
Barcelona, Spain for the second shots, the doubles. Both shots were taken with 6×6
pinhole cameras loaded with Fuji Reala 100.

In the following example, the first shots were taken in Hawaii (USA) by Ross Togashi
with his Bambole Mk.II Compact camera on 6×6 format with Fuji Reala 100 ISO film.
The film was rerolled and mailed to me in Barcelona, Spain for the second shots, the
doubles.I used my hacked Digna 6×6 pinhole camera.

For the next “experiment” the first shots were taken in Nashville, USA by
SquarePegPinhole on 6×9 format with Kodak Portra 160 ASA film. The film was
rerolled and mailed to me in Barcelona, Spain for the second shots, the doubles. I used
my 8banners pinhole camera using 6×9 format, too.

Last, but not least, the first shots were taken in Seattle, Wa, United States. The film was
rerolled and mailed to me in Barcelona, Spain for the second shots, the doubles. Both
shots were taken with 6×12 pinhole cameras loaded with Fujifilm Neopan 100 ASA.

Exposure details were not provided by the former photographer . . . much of the fun is
not knowing what the first shots were so there’s no trying to match/contrast images. The
results are sometimes quite surprising. I hope you enjoy them!
More recently, I asked to Marie Westerbom from Sweden to do a filmswap. She agreed
to do it and both decided to use Lomo Redscale film and Hasselblad cameras. As this is
not pinhole work she will post our work in her blog while I’ll post it in my Flickr gallery.

Our first film you can be seen here.

I would like to thank Marie for this wonderful collaboration!

  1. The images you show here are all excellent doubles!
    I want to thank you too Jesús, it was so much fun doing this, and I really like our doubles too!
    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Nice to see you posting some of the work you’ve done with various pinhole photographers. I like the second image you made with Ross very much, the city buildings really wall in the photograph pushing the viewer’s eye to the middle of the frame.
