I spent 9 months working on the studio using hundreds meters of wood and lots of other materials like plastic, copper, paper etc. I built more than 100 miniature objects all designed and built according to that era.
All the objects were made from scratch. There were lots of challenges especially when I was doing the research. I could find only few pictures from old studios all in white and black.
So I had to read about photography and a photographers at that time trying to figure out what tools, techniques, styles or colors they used in their studios.
The hardest part was how to recall the spirit of such place in a small scale. After reading lots of articles, watching hundreds of photos, and doing a huge research I could build a typical studio to the old days studios in recognition of old photographer.
