Maggie Ross – Imposing Views

Yesterday Maggie Ross transformed the front display window of our gallery, NOWhere Limited into a camera obscura. “Imposing Views” was a one day event in which visitors were offered the rare opportunity to have their portrait taken inside a camera.

The front window was blocked off except for a small hole which was covered with a lens. The inverted image of our town was projected through the pinhole to a screen inside the gallery. Participants interacted with the camera inside and out with interesting results.

Our models showed excellent poise as exposure time for some of these photos was more than two minutes. Thanks to everyone that came out to bear their souls as part of this interactive installation.

    What a great idea! The blue sky and orangey fossil store look really nice splitting the frames.
