Rather than taking 2,000 digital photos of Paris that you will never look at, why not pick up a pin-hole camera in the Kulte shop in Bastille. With this ‘100% slow’ object, you can take your time over your photos!


What is it?


The pinhole is a little cardboard box with a tiny hole in one side of it, and a piece of photographic paper inside it. The photographer Eric Marais had the bright idea of marketing it branded as Stenoflex. This 100% fashionable object is now sold in the most prominent locations in Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, London, New York, Hong-Kong and Tokyo.



A mini photo lab for €39



The Stenoflex is a portable camera obscura supplied with photosensitive paper, developing and fixing products and a sheet of inactinic film. For 39 euros, this mini lab, with its 10 sheets of paper and instructions, returns photography to the noble art of its origins. The only difference in the Luxury version, at 50 euros, produced as a limited edition, is its colour and motif!

Slow time


This minimalist piece of photographic equipment, which is totally anachronistic, takes magical pictures. The key is the guaranteed artistic and poetic soft focus, and the invariable originality of the picture. In a time when everything is digital, the Stenoflex requires you to take your time, with exposure times on a very 19th century scale. In praise of the slow, low-tech and the analogue!

Brigitte, 39 MOTHER

Mother, bohemian and Parisian, I love Paris' cosmopolitan side and warmth. Exhibitions, walks, outings with the children...I'll take you on a discovery of the most welcoming places in Paris. My little extra: with my love of food as my compass, I always set course for the best lemon tarts in the city.
