Scotland - Historic and Beautiful

This long-term project is about the historic architecture and the beautiful nature of Scotland. Using historical methods, I designed my own Camera Obscura (Tent Camera). The image, which is projected by the Camera Obscura on the ground, I photograph with analog or digital technology. The ultimate goal is to create works of exquisite texture and great plasticity. The ground is an integral part of the image, taken directly from the camera. Everything without double exposure or composing in post production.
