A truly unforgettable day [Fri 12 Aug] and an astounding ‘find’ in the ‘backstage’ vaults of the Science Museum of London. Thanks to Denis Pellerin and Rebecca.
Yes it’s me. A particularly good likeness, I thought. With my head in a camera obscura. It was used as an aid for painting in the 19th century. The image projected by the ‘camera’ could be traced on to a canvas. Ingenious ! For more details see www.londonstereo.com – and I will be writing about this trail of discovery.
