Richard Learoyd’s work is the product of a specific but particularly remarkable process. His images are produced individually as singular objects. Utilizing a distinct photographic method he creates life sized images inside a specifically built camera. This construction captures the image without any interposing film negative, transparency or intermediate material. Instead the apparatus of light is directly focussed by the camera and translated onto a sheet of positive photographic paper. With no means of reproduction, once created, ultimately every image is entirely unique in its existence.
Så vidt Deres Ærbødige Skribent kan forstå, minder Richard Learoyds camera obscura-teknik rigtig meget om John Chiaras metode, som vi havde et indlæg om for ikke så længe siden her.
