Happy camper


CAMPERblogpicAfter years of building cameras as part of community projects Fotonow photographers Jonathan Blyth and Matthew Pontin dreamed of becoming more mobile.  And so the Camper Obscura project was born!  A 1986 VW T25 camper van was transformed into a giant fully-functioning camera obscura on wheels. The blue periscope is in fact a lens and mirrors pointing skyward giving the viewer inside a 360 degree view of the surrounding area.  It’s a captivating experience where the viewer feels completely removed from the surrounding landscape and details of even the most mundane scene, that would usually be overlooked, suddenly become of interest.
