Camera Obscuras

David Hockenys explores the idea of camera obscuras being used 400 years ago to create masterpieces we appreciate today. I love the idea that cameras,even in a rudimentary form, were allowing artists to capture the world around them in exquisite detail. I’m so fascinated that they too were capturing the light.

The video is 43 minutes long and wanders into weeds for a bit, but it is well worth your time if you have an interest in photography and art.

H/T: Neocon for sharing this video.

After watching this video, I was reminded of a book I read over a year ago. GhostWalk written by Rebecca Stott which looks forward and backward in time tracing the pattern of alchemy, good glass, and murder. Issac Newton searched for truth in light with his glass prisms, centuries later photographers continue that search with our prisms constructed of lenses, electronics and metal.

This is a great book to read over a cold and snowy weekend.

    Beautiful photography, Trevor. I like the ‘Storm Clouds Rising’ and the Buffalo in sepia. Seriously, that is a real Buffalo?

    Thanks for sharing :) )

      Thanks Tania!
      That is a real buffalo in the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge in southwestern Oklahoma, near Lawton.
      The Storm Clouds Rising is a hay farm on Route 66 just about 4 miles south of me. One day driving home those clouds were rolling in and I thought they looked so cool I just started snapping pictures. That one is one of my favorites.
      As you probably guessed, that’s my old motorcycle in the others.
