This is the second in a series of Pinhole Photos from Latin America by Brian Barry. (see www.cubaobscura.com for previous collection) The images were captured within a six month period beginning in Mexico with the famous Day of the Dead celebrations and finishing in Honduras’ Mosquito Coast during Holy Week.
Mexico’s Copper Canyon, the childhood towns of ‘Pedro Paramo’ author Juan Rulfo, a town destroyed by a volcano and an eruption in Guatemala all provided inspiration for this collection.
All Pinhole Photos are hand printed from copper plates using a Photo Intaglio Etching process and are all of a limited edition.

Reader Brian Barry sent in the following in the comments section –
“…I’m from Cork and I take Pinhole Photos. I exhibited in Lismore a year ago in the same place The C.A.P. did. It was a show about Cuba.
Anyway, I’m writing to let you know that I’m now making Pinhole Cameras and will be selling them for the first time in The Glucksman next weekend (Nov 6,7,8) at the annual Craftsfair. My cameras each contain a photo etching from my Cuba Obscura collection. I’ll also have my prints available over the few days. …”
I had a look at his website, and the pinhole photographs are great. If you are out and about in Cork this weekend, the Lewis Glucksman craft fair looks like an interesting place to spend some time.
This is a great little animated video. How to make a pinhole camera, expose and develop. See more here
