About this exhibition / 關於展覽
當中使用A4 黑紙的設計更加是嘔心瀝血之作，這批紙樣均毋需刀模切割 DIE-CUT，純粹憑摺紙技法將一張A4 黑紙催生相機成形，其中幾件更加不需使用接合劑成形，盡量減少廢紙消耗。
Where the Light Gets in…
Pinhole Camera Exhibition by Martin Cheung
Similar to most boys growing up in HK, I had a passion for making model toys.
As a reason, I started to be interested in camera construction very quickly, not long after learning photography.
My hear was full of curiosity, and I started to disassemble cameras, wanting to know what’s inside cameras that makes photographs, thought I seldom assembled the cameras back to shape.
Until the first year in my university study, I joined a pinhole camera workshop, the magic from this tiny little hole has broaden my horizon. Any objects can be turned into a pinhole camera as long as it fits the basic requirement. From then, I haven’t stopped making cameras.
In the dial up phone line Internet era, there wasn’t many material about pinhole photography on the net. And I was not yet in contact with Hong Kong pinhole pioneer mr. Leung chi wo and booby sham back in those days to learn from them, so I barely explored the technique by making experiments and reading some materials from library.
I used to make one camera per week when I was at school, using various materials in different sizes, like rubbish bin, room, plastic, wood, metal, foamboard…… to chinese roast duck. No matter how the results turned out, those trials were more like a personals satisfaction, rather then public sharing.
Until, I teach pinhole photograph recently, I start to experiment again with daily objects, through cutting, folding and reshaping the material to become cameras. I hope to inspire more people to make their own pinhole camera after seeing mine, in order to promote it to a bigger popularity.
In this exhibition at Muji atelier, most of the designs are exposing to the public in its first time. Some are biscuit can, paper box or containers. Some are made in cardboard with zic-zac join to create the camera shape.
The blood, sweat and tears pieces are made with A4 black paper. The series require no die-cut on the paper, by using folding technique to create the camera shape, a few of them even requires no glue to merge the camera, to minimize wastage.
I hope you enjoy my designs.
