    I was lucky enough to see an Art Sinsabaugh show in Chicago about 3 years ago. His work is rather interesting as he shot with a 12x20 camera and most of his prints are 2 inches by 20 inches. Very unusual.

    Well, his 12x20 Banquet camera is now up for sale on eBay.

    See the camera here.

    See his work here.

    Thanks for pointing this out. The e-bay write up was nice because it seems the seller was a friend of Art.

    This was a little inspirational, as I love Art's work and I was thinking with my 8x10 camera it is only a 2x enlargement to get a 20" wide print. Last year I printed a few 7"x20" landscapes from 4x5 negs. I have not tired it with the 8x10 yet.

    I've always found his work very inspirational and his book 'American Horizons' is stunning and highly recommended.

    Thank you for the link.
