The Big Camera! Celebrates Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day

The Big Camera! Celebrates Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day

We will be celebrating Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day at the Central Filling Station in Knoxville, Tennessee.  It is a food truck park.  Our Big Camera offers art food!  We will share our homemade pinhole cameras and invite the community to take photos for this special day. Our camera crew will develop the paper negatives in the trailer darkroom and the images can be scanned and uploaded to the official website.
