Camera obscura

Camera obscura is a dark room, in which light falls through a
small hole to project an image of the world – upside down,
inverted and in natural colours.

Light consists of an endless number of light dots, reflected
by objects or people, spreading linear or in waves, leading to
this phenomenom in the dark.

Besides others Aristotle had already observed this in the 4th
century BC. Around the year 1500 Leonardo da Vinci and
Albrecht Duerer gained further insight and used the camera
obscura to capture precise perspectives. After discovering the
photographic process in the 19th century, cameras with lenses
were used to take pictures. The quality of the images is
different compared to the ones taken with a camera obscura
because the beams of light are broken.

Approximately 50 years ago a return to the natural image-
phenomenom began. It was mainly applied by artists to reflect
the world subjectively, due to long exposures timelessly and
with its own aesthetics.

Thresholds of our cognitive ability -
Photographs taken with the camera obscura seem like pictures
of dreams.
