For their experimental visual project Stenop.es, Paris-based photographers Romain Alary and Antoine Levi are just using a primitive technique: The Camera Obscura, a pinhole camera…
Two layers are merging while the landscapes takes place in the interior’s intimacy.
The idea is as simple as it is ingenious. All they have to do to create such an pinhole camera apartment is to entirely darken a room (probably using some kind of transparency) and adding a tiny pinhole to one of the windows. The result is an upside-down projection of the real world taking place everywhere inside, creating that astonishing effect of merging the outside landscape with the indoor space.
Documented by these professional photographers, this project is a brilliant example of combining old and new techniques, bringing urban environment directly into your apartment! And now check out the series!
