>Camera Obscura Boat Photo Workshop in Berlin

Camera Obscura Boat Photo Workshop in Berlin

Camera Obscura is a 2000-year-old technic for projecting an outside image through a lens to a wall inside the darkened room. It is also the foundation of modern days analogue photography. While this century’s photography went digital, a few world-known photographers evolved the technic to an art form.

Maciej is one of those artists that uses the camera obscura to expose images directly onto life size color photographic paper creating large scale unique paper negatives.  Due to nature of the process what the sun brings onto paper, it can’t be edited. The shutter needs to be open for up to 8 seconds, while the camera is in motion- these settings require a master photographer.

During the sunrise or sunset tour, you will see the sights of Berlin, the Wall, the Oberbaumbrücke and Molecule Man and more through the eye of most unique photographic device in Berlin. Maciej will introduce you to his process and camera obscura boat, you will see his creations while zipping a coffee or drink. And on a lucky day, if the light, weather and motions allow, you may witness the creation of a piece of art in the dark room of the Camera Obscura boat.

Meet the artist in the floating Camera Obscura, visit his art studio and see his artworks and enjoy the golden hour boat tour on the river Spree.
