Richard Learoyd takes us inside his giant homemade camera

Photographer Richard Learoyd demonstrates how to make a photograph using a jumbo-size camera obscura he built himself. His intimate, sharply focused portraits are exposed directly onto photo paper; they are one-of-a-kind original prints without negatives.
