RICHARD LEAROYD

"Richard Learoyd’s color images are made with one of the most antiquarian of photographic processes: the camera obscura. Literally translated from Latin as “dark room” Learoyd has created a room-sized camera in which the photographic paper is exposed. The subject—often a person, sometimes a still life—is in the adjacent room, separated by a lens. Light falling on the subject is directly focused onto the photographic paper without an interposing film negative. The result is an entirely grainless image. The overall sense of these larger-than-life images redefines the photographic illusion. Learoyd’s subjects, composed simply and directly, are described with the thinnest plane of focus, re-creating and exaggerating the way that the human eye perceives and not without a small acknowledgement to Dutch Master painting."

Two spots have opened up for the Salton Sea Workshop Dec 5-7, 2014

Salton 2

Join me for my fourth trip to the Salton Sea this year! We will photograph areas that include Salton City, Salton Shores, Bombay Beach, Desert Beach, and Brawley. On the east side, we will visit Slab City and Salvation Mountain built by Leonard Knight. Note that the Salton Sea is in constant change and some of the iconic structures that have been popular to photograph are rapidly disappearing. Take a look at my photo gallery here: http://www.keithskelton.com/album/the-salton-sea
