scanera twenty twenty 




Inspired by a studio camera from the late 1880’s, these images form part of two twenty page concertina books which serve to comment upon the advancements in modern photography. When this camera was first made, it would have taken roughly twenty minutes to capture one photograph. However, when I was investigating the object, I was able to take hundreds of photos and videos during that time. These images were made by folding paper into a concertina to mimic the form of the leather on the studio camera, then manipulating said forms on the scanner of a photocopier.
