Hamburg's Giant Pinhole Cameras.

Check out the Trashcam Project, an extraordinary photography project in Hamburg. Some 1,100 garbage containers in the city were converted into pinhole cameras by drilling a hole onto one side of the dumpster so the image is projected onto a giant sheet of photo paper inside. The project wanted to show Hamburg from the perspective of the sanitation workers by enabling them to take snapshots with their containers.

The city’s sanitation department asked Christoph Blaschke, Mirko Derpmann, Scholz and Friends Berlin and Matthias Hewing to come up with something special for the bin men. “They wanted to show off the city they love and take care of on a daily basis in all its glory so it had to be something pretty special”, explains Derpmann.
