Tuesday was a good day: the latest issue of National Geographic dropped through my letterbox, which always means I’ll be spending the evening immersed in their superb photographs and articles.
This month a piece titled Rooms With a View features photographer Abelardo Morell really captured my imagination. He has been taking photographs I can only describe as a clever mix between landscape and interior using camera obscura. Abelardo, like many earlier photographers, projects the view from the window of a darkened room back inside and onto the walls. Uniquely he then photographs the resulting scene from inside this camera obscura, creating a stunning trompe l’oeil.
After reading the article I couldn’t help but blackout my dining room and see what I could capture. Above is my best shot so far, I feel like a kid discovering how a camera works all over again!
