In 2015, Alex Orgera co-founded The Halide Project, an organization dedicated to preserving photographic practices both new and old. One of these methods, called pinhole photography, involves puncturing a hole into a lensless container. Light then passes through the hole, and creates an inverted image on the inside.

In her own words, Orgera has become “obsessed” with the process, and likens it to the feeling of a kid performing a science experiment. She talks about the artistic possibilities this old method provides, and explains why photographers who only work digitally are missing out.
