Camera Obscura

-A darkened enclosure where light passes through a lens pinhole and an upside-down image is seen on the opposite surface.

The Morning News has a gallery of photos from Abelardo Morell's book, Camera Obscura. Morell created these pictures by first blacking out the windows in several rooms and then putting a pinprick size hole in the covering. He then photographed the rooms and the upside down images of the outside world projected onto the walls. The photos he created are both eerie and beautiful.
