      • A visit to Horace Dall


        from Robin Scagell Added 656 0 1

        Horace Dall (1901-86) was a legendary telescope maker and optical worker living in Luton, Bedfordshire, UK. I made this video in 1982 using a VHS camera linked to a large home VHS recorder. We visit Horace's attic and see his camera obscura and some of his telescopes including the famous folding 6" reflector now on display in the Science Museum. We then go down to his workshop where he shows us some of the other instruments he made, including a highly sensitive aneroid barometer and a single-lens microscope, plus some colour photos from the 1920s.

            • The Inner Life of a Camera: The Camera Obscura and Contemplative Practice in a more than Human World


              from CSRS Added 4 0 0

              In this talk Trudi Lynn Smith will ask, “what is recoverable in photography?” The work Portable Camera Obscura uses proto-photographic practice to bring people together to consider the ways we constitute and experience photography. Smith considers how embodying indeterminacy might help provide the possibility for new appearances such as the uncanny, the spectral, and transitions that are not picked up in the common use of cameras. Rather than get caught in the association between photography and truth, stability, and arrival, how might photography cultivate an affinity for events on the move, as embodied, and as part of more than human lifeworlds? She will elaborate on this thinking by drawing on aspects of Buddhism that emerge from recent literature on the history of art (e.g. Kay Larson on John Cage) and aspects of Buddhist practice itself (e.g. Dharma art). Dr. Trudi Lynn Smith is an interdisciplinary artist, researcher and writer whose work focuses on practices of photography. She recently published The Anthropology of Historical Photography in a Protected Area: Life and death in Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta (Anthropologica 56:1); co-curated Ethnographic Terminalia: Archives and Ephemera (Hierarchy Gallery, Washington DC); and exhibited work at The North Third Street (Lafayette College PA), Arts Incubator Washington Park (Chicago), Open Space Gallery (Victoria), and The Southern Alberta Art Gallery (Lethbridge).

                from Medienwerkstatt Franken Added

                Nach Jahrzehnte langer erfolgreicher Arbeit als Werbefotograf hatte Günter Derleth genug von der hochtechnisierten Fotografie und beschloss - zurück zu den Wurzeln - , sich der Wiederentdeckung der Camera Obscura zu widmen, der ältesten Form der Lichtbildnerei. Diese Urform des Fotoapparates arbeitet ohne Objektiv, ohne Sucher, ohne Zeit- und Entfernungseinstellung. Eine schwarze Kiste ist lediglich mit einem Loch ausgestattet und einem Filmträger auf der Rückwand. Günter Derleth stellt seine Werke in Ausstellungen im In-und Ausland vor. Sein repräsentativer Bildband mit Camera Obscura – Fotos von Venedig erhielt auf Anhieb den Kodak-Fotobuch Preis. Mit der Filmkamera begleitete der MEDIENWERKSTATT-Autor Herbert Liedel (selbst Fotograf und Kameramann) Derleth bei seiner Arbeit in Nürnberg, München, Venedig und bei seinen Aktionen (z.B. begehbare Lochkamera). Die Filmaufnahmen entführen den Betrachter in die magische Welt archaisch wirkender Schwarzweiß-Fotografie.
