    Here is the video I saw about Dennis Manarchy. This camera is real, it's a 32 foot truck and the negs are 6 feet long!

    Interesting. The camera shown at 1:07 in the video isn't nearly as large as the trailer cam (artist's rendering, vaporware until proven otherwise) and the lens-subject and lens-back of camera (if that's where the film plane is) distances make no sense for possible focal lengths. I don't think he's shooting over 1:1, and the images on the negs shown later in the video are larger than that.

    Until proven otherwise, fantasy.

    Re the fantasy, sorry, dream, that drives all this, I don't see the connection between straight-on head shots and culture. More marketing fluff. Wrinkled old faces with stubble and without context ...

    It seems his solution to boring pictures is to make them with a bigger camera. All I see are larger boring pictures.

    That seems to be popular lately, if you can't make a good photo, make a really big photo and accompany it with a really pretentious "artist's statement" so everyone knows how special it is.
