Photographer Spends Over 10 Years Building 35-Foot-Long Camera
In a world where all things small are considered beautiful and cool, a photographer is doing something quite drastically different from the norm. Dennis Manarchy is in the process of creating a camera that is so huge, it captures 24-foot tall realistic photographs of incredible detail.
The camera itself is huge. Being 35 feet long, 12 feet tall and 8 feet wide, it's large enough to fit a small apartment into. It uses negatives that are 4.5×6 feet in size. An actual window needs to be used as a lightbox to view them. As opposed to dipping the negatives in chemicals, they need to be showered with the stuff in order to be developed.
