In the same way, Greek philosopher Aristoteles (384-322 BC) observed this phenomenon while watching a solar eclipse. Several blue prints and drawings of pinhole imaging devices were created by him.He invented those image-recording tools for the purpose of drawing projected pinhole images on canvas. Discover new ways of seeing with a pinhole camera. Only in the middle of the nineteenth century it became possible to render images permanently on light-sensitive material. Today the medium film is being joined by cameras with digital sensors which are equally useful to express old and new ways of seeing by using the archaic way of pinhole imaging creatively.
The longer the exposure, the more space and time seem to get merged in an image. Busy buildings or public places suddenly appear to be deserted perhaps a transparent shadow tells that there must have been somebody for long enough to be captured by the camera.The factor time makes rough waves appear smooth, surfaces of water slowly get transformed into a resting mirror.
