Photographers Turn Their Homes Into Cameras To Portray Life During Coronavirus Times
While staying at home, many photographers turned their houses and flats into studios. In fact, some of them even turned them into cameras! Brazilian photographer Bruno Alencastro turned the “camera obscura room” concept into a fantastic collaborative project.
He teamed up with other photographers, and each of them turned their home into a camera obscura. They took some fantastic shots showing the “upside-down reality” that we live in and telling their own stories about these days of isolation.
Bruno started by turning a room of his Rio de Janeiro apartment into a camera obscura. Basically, it was like a huge projector, bringing the outside world into his home. And he took the first photo of the project. “Even my dog has stopped for 4 seconds so that I could get a balanced exposure between the darkness of my room and the projection of the world outside,” Bruno jokes.
Since it was impossible to photograph other people at his home, he invited other photographers to collaborate with him from the safety of their own homes.
