Camera Obscura

A tiny hole in a box – or in this case, a room – acts as an aperture to an illuminated scene. The light passes through the hole into the darkened interior and shows up as a reverse image on a surface directly opposite the hole.

This is one of a series of Mum, Dad and Jo posing for a photo through the camera obscura at Lacock Abbey in Wiltshire, where Fox Talbot first successfully created the photographic negative.
