Steel-Oil-Steam - With a 1886 Chapman ‘British’ 15x12" Camera

Earlier this week the RPS helps a Zoom session talk by Tom Evans (of Evans+Hulf) about his collaborative project with Terry Hulf using an 1886 Chapman ‘British’ 15” x 12” camera owned and restored by Tom Evans. The camera is fitted with its original Dallmeyer 15 x 12” Rapid Rectilinear lens. The project Steel–Oil–Steam
"returns the camera to its origins as we photograph the engineering works and workers on the Kent and East Sussex heritage railway, and the restoration of a historic steam engine to run on the line."


I am not a LF photographer but found the details of the camera, restoration and use very interesting and their website contains full details of all aspects of its use on the project.
