Icelandic Poppies

Icelandic Poppies were created in a custom-built camera obscura. This ancient optical method is camera-less photography in its purest form made with no negative.

A single flash of light at 1/250th of a second illuminates a single poppy, which is focused through a lens onto the light sensitive paper Cibachrome.

The results act as a direct and almost physical rendition of the poppies. With a depth of field of 3–4mm these works have the sharpness of ultra large-format photography as well as the feeling of loose painting where the edge of the flowers blur into the background.

We wanted to capture the ephemeral beauty of these exquisite flowers.
