Technical notes on the camera obscura:

 

• The LENS of the camera was custom built: It is an achromatic Doublet lens with 6 inches diameter and 102 inches focal length (f/17). The lens is fully coated to reduce reflections.

 

• The CAMERA was built under strict specifications to meet both public access codes and the needs of the artistic project which require the camera to be portable (able to be re-installed in different sites), large enough to accommodate as many as 25 people at a time.

 

• Our eyes naturally see things upside down; it is our brain that processes the image "right side up".

 

• Revealed Portfolio 1.0 consists of 22 photographs

 

• Revealed portfolio photos are archival pigment ink prints and measure 24" X 24"

 

• Portfolio 1.0 was created with a Hasselblad H2 camera with a 22 MP Leaf back, June, 2006.

 

A special portfolio of high quality photographic prints have been created using this camera obscura and featuring images from the site-specific performance. For information on viewing and purchasing these prints, please contact Stephan Koplowitz at skoplowitz@gmail.com
