Richard Learoyd’s images are made with one of the most antiquarian of photographic processes: the camera obscura. Literally translated from Latin as “dark room” Learoyd has created a room-sized camera in which the photographic paper is exposed. The subject—often a person, sometimes a still life—is in the adjacent room, separated by a lens. Light falling on the subject is directly focused onto the photographic paper without an interposing film negative. The result is an entirely grainless image. The overall sense of these larger-than-life images redefines the photographic illusion. Learoyd’s subjects, composed simply and directly, are described with the thinnest plane of focus, re-creating and exaggerating the way that the human eye perceives and not without a small acknowledgement to Dutch Master painting...

simdi bekliyordum deyip yazmamak olmaz, ahtopotun uzuvlari bir yana 3 boyutlu el inanilmaz. Fotograftan canli bir fotograf cikarmak buna denir galiba!

You like to visit the exhibitions and take some pictures of them. Good framing and camera settings to have only the FG sharp. The blurred person at the back is essential in the picture. I like very much your B&W treatment.
