The book Light for Art’s Sake (2021)1 was launched with a related exhibition at the University of Pretoria in October 2021. The way in which pinhole photography was practised for more than two decades at the University has allowed students to benefit from their practice of the medium in more ways than only producing photographs. Prescribed limited budgets provided accessible means to learn basic skills related to such an old and widespread medium. Ways of working by hand in the darkroom also proved enabling when considered in other fields of life.
