Nick T. Spark Photography.

Interesting 360 degree camera.
Ovnipan is a circular pinhole camera that has six pinholes equally spaced around its periphery, thus covering all 360º of the scene. The film plane is an inner cylinder that covers a panoramic format of 6 x 18cm. The shutter is the white plastic cylinder that forms the outside of the camera. All six pinholes are uncovered simultaneously, when the shutter is rotated.

This Be The Verse
They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.
But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another’s throats.
Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don’t have any kids yourself.
–Philip Larkin (1974)
