Have you ever entered a camera?
This is what the Center des Monuments Nationaux invites you to do, with Maréva Druilhe, finalist of the Prix Voltaire de la Photographie 2020, by creating an installation that reproduces the interior of a camera obscura.
A dark room, with the exception of a tiny luminous entrance: this is the optical principle of photography.
Come and admire the exterior, seen from inside the Château de Voltaire on Saturday September 4, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
