 La région d’Orion (Stars / Area around Orion)”: photo by August Strindberg, 1893-94


“I have worked like a devil and have traced the movements of the moon and the real appearance of the firmament on a laid-out photographic plate, independent from our misleading eye. I have done this without a camera and without a lens. […] The photographic plate showed an area full of moons. Certainly, every spot on the photographic plate reflects a moon. The camera misleads as the eye does and the tube hoaxes the astronomers!” — August Strindberg: from a letter to physiologist Bengt Lidforss, 26 December 1893 (via TOM CLARK: Strindberg’s Celestographs: A Nonmechanical Cosmophotography)
