outside in and upside down – a camera obscura exhibition down under

Camera Obscura drawing

Toronto. The earliest known cameras may have been the camera obscura variety. They were often an closed room in an amusement area with a tiny hole or lens on one wall that projected the outdoor scene on the opposite wall upside down.

My thanks goes to George Dunbar for spotting this article in the UK’s Guardian┬ánewspaper touting an exhibition in Australia … . Many believe the camera obscura evolved into the modern day camera.
