    Cute analogy. But if you are inducing class B or C distortion in the artwork, what's the point?

    What's the frequency Kenneth?

    The prints however most probably will be digital prints.

    I tried real hard to find something to cynically dis– about this man and his project, but taken as presented on the site, all I can come up with is great admiration for both.

If the objective is not exposing American cultures, then what's the point? Making big pictures? Because you can?

    Then don't hide behind some noble bull sheet ideal and ask for money. That's crap.

    The portraits look like they're made on 8X10 (in terms of DOF, at least) ! I guess that such a big camera as the one he claims to use would have huge focusing problems at such close distance focusing. Seems impossible to make portraits to me... then, I might be mistaken...

    And the use of such huge negs (where did he get them manufactured, by the way ??) will pose huge problems with scanning them in order to print the huge plotter prints he displays. Did he scan them in a custom-made ultra large format scanner ? Or did he cut them in smaller pieces and made them fit in a usual large format scanner ? I don't know whether someone could find a scanner that will fit a 6foot large transparency or neg !!
