The legendary photographer, Fritz von der Schulenburg commissioned Nilu Izadi and sculptor Matt Steavenson to create a camera obscura for his beautiful home in North Wales.

The resulting “sputnik” as the locals described it, a stainless steel converted silo tank, created the most mystical of images she have ever seen inside a camera obscura. The projected landscape shimmered onto the stainless steel creating what resembled a da Vinci painting yet more painterly and expressive, a type of ‘sfumato’ on a hard surface, more alive and magical compared to projections on a white wall.
