    World's Largest Photo taken with World's Largest Camera

    Converting an airplane hangar into a camera.

    I shoot digital when I have to (most of those shots end up here) and film (occasionally one of those shots ends up here) when I want to.

    I believe that hanger was also eventually demolished, making it the World's Largest Single-Use Disposable Camera...

    wish i could see it in person ..
    liquid light is fun stuff
    ( this image has been on the rockland colloid site for a long time )

    i hope viewing distance is good where they are showing it ..
    images like this are hard to view up close ( like an impressionist painting or pinhole image or soft focus stuff )
    at a certain distance everything falls into place and it looks great ...
    im empty, good luck

    It's still impressive, every time I see it again.

    i am the same way ...

    knowing how it is not easy to coat a 11x14 sheet of paper or canvas with a bit of liquid emulsion,
    and these folks used 21 gallons to coat something 107x31 FEET .. yup, its pretty impressive
    im empty, good luck

    I recall hearing about this, but I never saw the photograph nor have read an article about it. Thanks for the post omaha. "Washed with fire hoses." - Mama mia!
