Photography exhibition with live camera obscura

Only being shown in Connecticut, but a good excuse to get out of the hot weather.

A Triple-Header Celebrates Art Of Light
New Haven Independent – CT, USA
His eye-bending work in optics and in the ancient technique of camera obscura, which he renders anew, are featured in an exhibition at Yale University Art

This exhibit really focuses on the photographic method, not just the subject matter the artists have tried to capture. All of the artists shown have very different statements to make, and are in different parts of their career, which I think is always fun since as an audience I’m not seeing work done by everyone in the graduating class or work done by a group of people at the end of their career. You get to see the artists’ on different parts of their path, and compare the different paths each photographer is taking/has taken in their exploration of light.
