Richard Learoyd


British photographer Richard Learoyd creates color images with one of the most antiquarian of photographic processes: the camera obscura. He has created a room-size camera, otherwise known as a dark room, where he makes direct positive prints by exposing large sheets of photographic paper directly to light. Each sheet is processed individually, creating an entirely grainless image. Learoyd's photographs are predominantly studies of people, who are clad or nude and more or less life-size.
