LiveStudio - Walter Hugo: Construction Commences!

Artist and photographer Walter Hugo is the next creative to take up residence in our LiveStudio, as part of the SHOWstudio Shop exhibition Practice to Deceive. In fact, he took up residence on Saturday to construct his gigantic camera obscura - with a little help from his friends. Blocking out every chink of light in our daylight studio, Hugo's hardwood room-within-a-room will be the stage for the latest step in his portrait series Reflecting The Bright Lights, Capturing a Moment in Silver Nitrate. On Thursday 12 May 2011, we will be live-streaming the painstaking process of Hugo capturing a selection of London luminaries on film (or rather, on glass plate). Tune in to watch this incredible window into photographic processes past...
