Artist Insight: The Mobile Darkroom's Shane Arsenault & Natalia Barberis show us how they built a large format camera


Ever wonder what it’s like to hand craft a large format camera? The ambitious Calgary-based artist duo, Shane Arsenault and Natalia Barberis, from The Mobile Darkroom share an incredible time-lapse video on how they built their 20x20" ultra large format field camera.

This stunning camera and several other works are now display in our exhibition Before Digital: Post 1970-Photography in Alberta until March 16, 2019 at Illingworth Kerr Gallery. For more information, please visit Shane and Natalia’s website The Mobile Dark Room, download our exhibition brochure, or follow their work on instagram.
