Like the camera obscura, the pinhole camera was an influential precursor to that most sophisticated of mechanical tools, the modern multilens camera. At a time when it, in turn, is being challenged by newer reproductive technologies, such rudimentary modes of image making are, paradoxically, proving unexpectedly vital. In their recent works, both Canadian artist Rodney Graham and German Vera Lutter draw on these pioneering techniques and historical models to construct vividly arresting representations.
