Richard Learoyd – Guided Tour
From February 21st to May 24th , 2020
Richard Learoyd (Nelson, United Kingdom, 1966) is one of the most well-known contemporary photographers of our times. His work, which establishes a dialog with both painting and the origins of photography, is rooted in the past in terms of the themes he addresses and the techniques he employs.
He makes his pictures with a camera obscura he has built himself. The portraits taken by means of this process give rise to life-sized photographs. This conveys the direct presence of the person being depicted and enables us to look at them in an unusually up close way. His themes cover the classic genres of traditional painting: portrait, landscape and still life.
His color photographs have no negatives, meaning that each one of them is unique. Although the photographer could take the photo again, it would never be exactly the same.
