Harry works with a large format Gandolfi 10 x 8 inch wooden plate camera. He uses just a single 240mm lens, which is a medium wide angle. The tripod is the heaviest manfrotto studio tripod available. The apparatus is very heavy and moving around too much is difficult and often unnecessary. Photographing with this camera requires a combination of anticipation and patience. The film is standard negative emulsion, mostly Fuji. It is much the same as is used in standard small film cameras. The difference of course is in the size of the negative and the resultant level of detail.

Love this. (the bold part)

In other words "fuck it, this bloody thing is too damn big and cumbersome so I'll just shoot it at the ground"
