The Great Very Large Picture


General Photography

“The world’s largest photograph will have its premier showing in the Wind Tunnel at Art Center’s South Campus. This landmark photograph, a gelatin silver image that is three stories high by 11 stories wide, was produced in the summer of 2006 using a shuttered Southern California F-18 jet hangar transformed into an enormous camera obscura — the largest camera ever made.” (source) There’s a website about the photo here and a movie about the “making of” here. As much as I find such attempts to create an even larger photo than ever before not all that interesting, I am quite glad to see that it’s not yet another digital photo.
