Maximillian, age 2 years and 4 months is taking part in his first Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day – the youngest participant of the event (???).

It is never too late to take up photography, and never too early. On Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day 2008 our son, Maximillian Fabbri, was 2 years and 4 months old. At this age a child is like a sponge, really soaking up any information given to them. Maximillian has showed a great interest in cameras for a long time and we decided to let him “have a go” at Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day 2008. We set out using a Holga plastic pinhole camera. Here is a picture account of the day.


Sunday 27th of April 2008

Maximillian sets out hunting for a good motif.

But first, you’ve got to remove “the cork”.

Which side up?

Oh, it was the other one!

That dandilion looks good…

Aims and shoots.

And… in classic two year old style, has a tantrum throwing the camera! Luckily there are not too many parts that can break on a Holga plastic pinhole camera.
