It’s basically the same thing I described in the last post: turning a room into a camera. Bringing the landscape indoors.
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 allows an inverted image of the view outside to flood onto the walls of the room. I would focus my large-format camera on the incoming image on the wall and expose the film. In the beginning, exposures took five to ten hours…One of the satisfactions I get from making this imagery comes from my seeing the weird and yet natural marriage of the inside and outside.”
