Camera Obscura photographs on Llallwni Mountain

The box is designed as a perfect volume of space for carrying, containing and protecting. Converted into a portable camera obscura, and fitted with a digital camera, the box is used as a means to view the outside world differently, creating a dialogue between external and internal space. Rugged Welsh landscapes as seen through this ethereal lens provoke alternative ways of looking at material presence. There is beauty in the austerity of the Welsh moorland and the confluence of nature and industry. The camera obscura gives heightened depth of field and a dreamlike quality to the photographs.
