Super Alter-Ego

Everyone knows the story of Superman & Clark Kent. For most intents and purposes, Mr Gangwoo Park was not all that much different. By day, he was a mild-mannered business consultant. But by night, he was a full-on photographic maniac, with a passion for old-school and alternative process techniques. Wanting to expose his countrymen to the wonders of pinhole, he set out to design and produce his very own line of beautiful handcrafted cameras – and rightfully named them “PinholeArt.” As fast as lightning, these quirky items caught on and became a full-time, all-engrossing business.

Mr. Park, Korea’s best (and only) pinhole guru is now thrilled to offer his exclusive items to the Lomographic Community at large. Open wide, and bite off as much as you can chew.

DIY CONSTRUCTION
Whether you’ve been taking photos for 20 days or 20 years, take it from me that nothing compares to the feeling of shooting with an instrument that you’ve built with your own hands. It’s breathtaking! Everything that you need, except for a little glue and a lotta sweat, is included in the package. Get cracking!

Rich wood finish
Let your eyes take it in. The lightweight wood finish has been treated for maximum durability and serious beauty. This tender blonde looks just as good as the photos it takes.

Partial Advance
PinholeArt cameras use the most basic of internal mechanics. After you shoot, you have to manually advance to the next frame. This means that you can (1) shoot limitless multiple exposures on the same frame or (2) advance only a partial frame – to create overlapping exposures or insane panoramics whose length is only limited by the length of your film.

Slide Shutter
Pinhole exposures are quite long – starting at about 2 seconds in full sunlight. For this reason, a simple slide shutter is used – allowing you to set the camera down, open the shutter, and then enjoy a coffee in the corner café while your camera is busy shooting.


PinholeArt DIY Combo

Smooth cardboard and hard card paper come together to form this light brown beauty. Using medium format film, the DIY Combo yields large, dazzling square–format prints – which can stand quite a bit of enlargement and still look like a million bucks. A red window on the back shows your exposure count – and also allows for easy partial-frame multiple exposures. And the buck doesn't stop there - this pulp fiction superstar can be instantly transformed into a 35mm camera as well! I tell you, absolutely nothing can stop the shining.

Variable Format
The Combo shoots both 120 and 35mm images – both of which have their own benefits. 120 (medium format) film yields sharper images due to its increased size and resolution. It also gives a dramatically wider-angle view. 35mm images have a tighter field of vision and offer the ease and economy of 35mm film. If you shoot regular, full frames, then you can process and print your PinholeArt Combo 35mm film at any regular lab.
