Colin Smith at the Whyte Museum
Saturday, April 4, 2015
Whyte Museum: Camera Obscura is exhibited at the Whyte Museum from April 4 to June 5, 2015.
In Latin camera = room, obscura = dark. Calgary-based photographer Colin Smith presents large format images taken within camera obscuras that he creates in found abandoned buildings, fire tower lookouts and a Boler trailer. He manipulates the light of the obscura projections and the natural light to produce highly saturated, breathtaking imagery that challenges the viewer’s perceptions.
