Explore the Museum's science collection through the lens of Angie Turnbull's Deardorff camera, in this stunning display of 13 photographs. The display is the result of a two year collaboration, using Angie's large format photography technique and skills to interpret science objects from the Museum's collection.
Objects have been selected to demonstrate the scope of the collection as well as intrigue and challenge with their form, material or other unique attributes.
Angie Turnbull uses a Deardorff large format camera with a Honduras mahogany body (because timber accepts harder use better than metal) and leather bellows between the lens and film plane. She manipulates the flexible planes to control the image, focus area and adjust parallax errors and perspective. The camera captures images on a negative that is 8 x 10 inches (20.32 x 25.4 cm).
Part of the Head On Photo Festival 2012.
