    Hi boys and girls,

    During my holday I saw some pictures of a photographer who photographed cities in a rather unusual way. He looked for rooms (usually hotel rooms) wich he could turn into huge camera's (according to the camera obscura principle) and than photographed his room with the reflection of the city the walls with a normal camera. I forgot the name of the photographer but since these pictures where rather amazing I am sure someone must have heard from him.

    cheers!

    Look for the book "Camera Obscura" on amazon.com....

    Hope this helps.

    Wow!! I hadn't heard of him before...I love his work...There was a really interesting (albeit short) article on his website about the process he uses to make each picture.

    Thanks
