Saw this article in the New York Magazine:

And found his web site:

This guy sets up a huge pinhole - in a room, say, or in a portable tent on a rooftop or the ground - and then photographs the resulting image projected on whatever surface, often with extremely long exposures in order to capture an image.

I find this pretty astounding - not just the results, but the ingenuity and obsessive seeming dedication to the craft.
