When it comes to photographing the arctic, the task is usually left to scientists doing research work. Inspired by the adventures of the explorer Ernest Shackleton, photographer Enzo Barracco decided to fund his own trip to Antarctica to capture it in an artistic way.
CAMERA OBSCURA BY ABELARDO MORELL
Photographer Abelardo Morell - “I made my first picture using camera obscura techniques in my darkened living room in 1991. In setting up a room to make this kind of photograph, I cover all windows with black plastic in order to achieve total darkness. Then, I cut a small hole in the material I use to cover the windows. This opening allows an inverted image of the view outside to flood onto the back walls of the room. Typically then I focused my large-format camera on the incoming image on the wall then make a camera exposure on film. In the beginning, exposures took from five to ten hours”. [see more]
