About the event

The London Festival of Photography 2012 presents 'Camera Obscura' - a show that brings together a body of works by the artist and photographer Minnie Weisz.

Minnie Weisz has been turning buildings 'inside out' since her first camera obscura show at the 2006 London Architecture Festival.

This exhibition brings together her body of work, spanning the last seven years, these photographs are born out of her interest in the identity of spaces, particularly buildings on the brink of change, such as the Great Northern Hotel, or the Fish & Coal Offices in King's Cross.

Alongside a more sober, documentary approach, highlighting the materiality of the architecture, Weisz fashions these deserted spaces as a camera obscura. Allowing light in through the pinhole of a darkened room, this technique inverts the outside view, projecting it back onto the walls inside. In this way, as the artist explains, the camera obscura becomes “the key which unlocks a dialogue between exterior and interior worlds.”
