Laurence Aberhart works are understated yet powerful, captured using a 100-year-old Korona View Camera; the sort that pioneers used in the nineteenth century to bring home records of what the world looked like. Aberhart develops each image using an entirely analog process where each is developed by hand, usually keeping to the same scale as the camera's negative allows. For the first time, this new body of photographs are all printed at a larger scale and have been specially printed in Belgium to maintain the intensity of detail and atmosphere that he captures in each image.
