Loading Independent Art Space carried out a pinhole workshop with Diyarbakır-based instructor and artist Şevda Tuğrul. The oldest form of the camera, the pinhole, denotes an analog machine which utilizes a special photographic technique. A series of trainings and meetings evolved into a workshop which enabled participants to produce their handmade cameras via tools such matchboxes, 35mm film strips, tape, cylindrical pipes, foil, and other materials. The second part of the workshop involved the exploration of potential spaces for shooting which later resulted in the selection of Hevsel Gardens as the study field. Finally, the workshop included a discussion on the relationship between theory and technique as well as the role of light in photography production and experimenting which were inspired by participants’ printed photographs.
