    Probably blacks out all the windows in the room (gaffers tape and black cloth/paper/trash bags). Creates a pinhole in one window that projects on a far wall. That wall is covered in tiled sheets of the photographic paper. – just a guess.

  • very unique. love it

  • Simon James Gill

    lots of different rooms or a mobile camera obscura. I’ve seen sometime called ‘camper-obscura’ a camper van with a lens on a sort of periscope.
    Great consistency of exposure. Very well executed.

  • Elizabeth Walshaw

    I really like these images – they’re similar to Steven Pippin’s work in the 80s.
