Pinhole Photography From Poland

I sure wish I had reason to be in Boston right now. The Art Institute of Boston is showing an exhibit called Made in Poland: Contemporary Pinhole Photography. I don't know anything about pinhole photography but it sure looks intriguing to me. There's an interesting web site called Pinhole Visions that has a nice gallery of images. My favorites are the ones by Melissa Joi Slepekis. The pictures have just enough detail so you can identify the images in them but at the same time have a soft and grainy, dream-like look to them inviting your imagination to fill in the story.
