The Mark III Time-Lapse Pinhole Cameras were specifically designed for the FORMAT 11 International Photography Festival (2011) and helped produce the series A Month Of Nights, Derby. They opened for only 1 hour per night by means of a large wheel-like card shutter that completely surrounded the clock and film canister pinhole camera. This meant an obvious increase in nestbox size to accommodate the enlarged shutter apparatus.
