Each day we photograph the world with our eyes. The light comes inside and leaves a mark that we recognise as sea waves, friends’ faces, setting Moon, melting ice. We learnt how to build such eyes, but still the most important is the light - without it no photo or film can exist.
During the presentation we will learn how we see when there is almost no light, what we see after our eyes are closed and finally can we take a photo with our eyes? Taking a photo without a camera, we will know what luminogram and photogram is. Also, we will learn how different pigments react to light. We will make experiments with pinhole projector which will reveal camera obscura phenomenon. With the help of mirrors and lenses we will see if we can send the picture from distance. Thanks to all these experiments we will grasp how optic and light phenomena gave way to creating photography.
