The photographers Romain Alary and Antoine Levi have created an experimental visual project Stenop.es, based on the photographic technique of the 'camera obscura', but taken to new extremes. 

Stenop.es is an ambitious project that takes this antique technique, very important is the evolution of photography, to a new level. The premise is to turn entire apartaments into 'camera obscuras'. By turning each room into a large pinhole camera, the outside images are brought to the inside. The city outside them merges with the interior, creating a collage that combines tactile and projected elements. The images of buildings turned upside down are transformed into surreal reflections and the public landscape enters the intimacy of the apartment. The two layers are fused into juxtapositions of outside and inside that reveal new points of view of both realities.
