The Excelsior Six




New Invention: The Excelsior Six – a camera that produces an ink drawing onto aged paper set in a small frame. Made from scrap parts from a film enlarger which was converted into an animation stand. I started out building a camera to take Daguerreotype pictures but decided that the process in which the image is exposed directly onto a mirror-polished surface of silver bearing a coating of silver halide particles deposited by iodine vapor seemed too complicated. And I’ve always wanted a camera that would take drawings of things- since photographs can get so boring.
Drawings from the camera to come soon.
