Elizabeth Ellsworth hand builds camera obscuras. She rigs them with translucent papers that she manipulates to choreograph flows and reflections of sunlight as it meets landscapes and built environments. Her altered photographic apparatus is an assemblage of digital camera+analogue device used during the Renaissance to study light and model human vision.

Elizabeth’s photographs are image-sensations of light presenting itself as force that is by turns uncanny, dreamlike, impish.
