In collaboration with Fundación MAPFRE, this autumn The Hague Museum of Photography will host a major solo exhibition of work by Richard Learoyd (b. 1966, Nelson, UK). Learoyd produces portraits, landscapes and still lifes that are closely related to painting. He creates his life-size photographs using a camera obscura that he built himself, so there are no negatives. This means that, as in painting, each picture is a unique artwork.
