Editorial Reviews

"[O]ne of the greatest photography reference books I have seen in a very long time. [T]his book is absolutely bursting with information. Even just taking a quick flip through the pages and seeing the over 300 images by more than 100 artists, it is almost daunting to think that the entire book is written solely on the topic of pinhole photography. But Renner does skimp on anything.. If you are looking for an in-depth explanation of pinhole photography, a detailed show-and-tell of how to create your own pinhole camera, or would like to advance your pinhole photography to the next level, this book is an incredible resource and certainly one every photographer should have."--- HolgaBlog.com
