Francesco Capponi has created the Pinhegg, a pinhole camera crafted from an egg. It’s inherent fragility made for many frustrations along the way, but the results are amazing photographic objects. Read more and find a step-by-step guide to making one via Lomography magazine.
— Francesco Capponi
Since I started pin-holing the world, I have had the strong desire to make a special camera, with the purpose of shooting just one photograph. The purpose was to sacrifice the camera in the process of photo creation – I wanted the camera to become the photograph. To let you understand, the process from the camera to the photograph is the same that ties the baby bird to the egg: the bird grows protected from the shell and when it’s ready breaks it and comes out. This is why I decided to create the Pinhegg – An Egg Pinhole Camera.
