A graduate in Product Design from Parsons, the New School for Design in New York, Enrique Diaz-Rato has been diligently putting together an exceptional portfolio. One of his creations is the Pinhole Camera, a beautifully simplistic device rendered in injection moulded Polyethylene, rabbit fur and goat leather.

The Pinhole camera dates back to the Middle Ages. It operates using a simple mechanism, in which an image gets burnt onto a photographic paper as light enters a dark chamber through a small hole. In today?s digitally suffocated world the true essence and value of a photograph has lost its enchantment. This modern Pinhole camera allows the user to experiment with photography through a form that has essentially disappeared.
