Antarctica. Pinholes at the end of the world
Antarctica is still, in many respects, a continent to explore. In this exhibition of pinhole photography, we show a small part of this “terra almost incognita”, Livingston Island, where the Spanish Antarctic Base is located. In 12 images we visit Livingston and its inhabitants among which penguins, elephant seals, seals and scientists are included.
Pinholes at the end of the world is a small part of the ambitious project "Next Best Thing Pinhole Project," organized by photographer Herschel Pollard, who collects pinhole photographs taken by photographers from all over the world for over a year.
Todd Schlemmer provided the tool, the “TerraPin Pinhole Camera”, a camera made with a 3D printer. Jesús Joglar developed the film and performed the image processing, in addition to recruiting and training the photographer, Paulo Casal.
Born in Barcelona in the late 80's, Casal is a Ph.D. student with a degree in Biology and an amateur photographer since 2009.
He started in underwater digital photography with a waterproof Olympus, which he stretched to its limit, and then went on to acquire his first digital SLR. Since he began shooting, he has been mainly engaged in nature photography.
Less than a year ago, Paulo entered the world of pinhole photography through this project.
