Richard Learoyd: In the Studio
Admission is free.
This exhibition features a striking selection of large-scale color photographs by acclaimed contemporary photographer Richard Learoyd. The contemplative mood and exquisite detail of his portraits, figure studies, and still lifes, create an uncanny sense of intimacy between subject and viewer.
Working in his East London studio, Learoyd utilizes a room-sized camera obscura with a fixed lens to make unique direct-positive prints. Pared to the essential components of making a photograph—a dark chamber fitted with a lens, sensitized paper, and light—his labor-intensive process is closely associated with the early history of the medium.
