Richard Learoyd. The Silence of the Camera Obscura

Exhibitions in Barcelona. Fundación MAPFRE Casa Garriga Nogués Exhibition Hall


In a time when photography has become trivial and ubiquitous, Richard Learoyd's photographs are uniquely captivating. His black and white and color photographs are the result of an artisan process with a camera obscura he built himself. His work is rooted in the past and makes multiple references to the history of painting, both in terms of his themes and the technique he employs. Richard Learoyd (Nelson, United Kingdom, 1966) is one of the most well-known contemporary photographers working today.
