    Walk-in camera obscuras are nothing knew, but too dim to be very practical.

    However this concept to make a photographic series depicting the outside of several homes that way is a good idea.

    I tried it and it works. I met a french photographer who drilled a hole into the wall between his living room and the kitchen;then, he utilized the kitchen as his camera obscura to take pictures of his unexpecting visitors in the living room. he exhibited them at photokina in Cologne in 2010; very creativebut few friends lef.

    There was one in Madison sq park a few years ago, it was cylinder shaped with a simple adjustable iris aperture. Worked even on cloudy days, and you could even cup your hand to make a smaller hole for an even sharper but dimmer image. Very cool experience. I also had a chance to meet a photographer in Tompkins sq park that built a collapsable one large enough for one or two people that made it for her final project. I think Bruce gilden was also there helping out which was strange as he didn't have his leica, and had a smaller maybe mirrorless digital camera? He looked familiar but I didn't realize it was him until after I took my class back inside.

    I love Morell's work. It inspired me to make a rough, portable camera obcura at the college this year. We set it up and brought in students, faculty, etc. Everyone was surprised at what they saw (most being unaware of this phenomenon) and it also was a good way to drive interest towards my photo classes.

    If you have a security "peephole" in your door at home, you may already have one at hand
