Justin McAteer: "This self-portrait was taken in a hotel room in Gatwick on a Canon EOS 70D with a Holga pinhole lens and remote release. It makes my wife laugh because it's so realistic and reminds her of Hans Holbein's The Body of the Dead Christ in the Tomb."

Simon Byrns: "The Beeston Bee-man watches as an ephemeral person passes through. The pinhole was made by pushing a small needle just through a flattened-out Nespresso pod and attached to my Canon 450D."

Elvis Halilovic makes pinhole cameras with his brother: "With pinhole photography you learn to take it slow. People queue up to get their shot taken with a pinhole camera, and you are left with more than just an image - you relive the memory. These are the feelings that are driving me to make pinhole pictures."
