Event: Holiday Pinhole Photo Exchange 2021-2022

The website www.pinholehpex.net is a bit more bare bones this year for lots of reasons but that is how this year went. A little history,

Way back in 2001, Zernike Au came up with the idea of swapping Christmas/Holiday cards with other people on the pinhole-discussion mailing list. The idea evolved into an annual New Year exchange of cards. It was a great success and we’ve done it every year since. From this page you are able to see a list of people to whom you will send cards.

The rules have always been as follows:
The Swap starts on December 1st of each year and closes on February 28th.

The cards should arrive via postal mail sometime in the month of December to February.

You can either randomly choose a bunch of people from the list to send cards to, or send to everyone on the list if you’d like!

The card should contain a pinhole/lenseless photo image. Please note: Some people send to everyone on the list and count on getting a photo in exchange. (Actually we all hope for a photo in return if we send one to someone!). (The #1 concern from many participants. I send to everyone but in the past few years I receive about 30% in return)
You can sign up to the 2021-2022 Swap at www.pinholehpex.net
Happy Holidays to All, Chuck Flagg
