The ‘Trashcam Project’ transforms dumpsters into traveling pinhole cameras that roll around the city of Hamburg. The images are breathtaking: slightly vague black-and-white city drama. Would you believe that these beautiful photos were taken from inside the dirtiest objects on the city streets?
Photographers Christoph Blaschke, Mirko Derpmann, Scholz and Matthias Hewing collaborated with the Hamburgs cleaning department. Drilling tiny holes into the containers, they taped Ilford photo paper to the back wall of the interior. The length of the exposure is calculated based on the strength of the sun or other ambient lighting present in the scene. The exposure sometimes takes up to an hour.
