In this workshop with photographer Sam White we’ll learn about the varied history of the camera obscura, seeing how it was put to use by both artists and scientists. We’ll recreate a technique thought to have been used by Vermeer to create his masterpieces – using the camera obscura to project images that can be traced by hand onto canvas.

Suitable for ages 10 and above

A talk on the varied history of the camera obscura, covering how artists and scientists have put this device to use throughout time. We’ll see examples of how it was used for everything from creating masterpieces and making discoveries to helping shoot down planes and helping control through fear.

Meet photographer Sam White and step inside his camera obscura where you can learn about the workings of light and optics. See the world upside-down and back to front, before working together to create a unique portrait. A fun, family activity for the Easter holidays.
