Illy Cam

A little workshop today for Echo Park Film Center’s intimate friends Danny, Matt, Dicky, Chloé and Paolo and me of course.

We bought some Illy espresso coffee cans (the Film Center has now coffee for the next two years I guess), drilled holes, taped ready-made holes on them (I brought some from Germany, different diameters, laser drilled, from Monochrom), put sheet film inside, closed, ready! A perfect pinhole camera! The lid is absolutely light-tight!

We went into the park and shot some weird photos, then returned and developed them in … coffee! Success! At least partly! Some turned out to be overdeveloped because exposure time was more guessing than knowing … but anyway: fun and beauty!!!
