You might be thinking the article title is something that dates back to the beginnings of photography. If you think so, you would be wrong. There is a very exciting new project that is happening today that has lead to the production of the worlds largest camera in history and it’s not a spoof, gimmick or joke. It is the real deal. Dennis Manarchy has pulled together a project called “Vanishing Cultures” where he has built a 35 foot large format camera that uses a piece of film that is 6 feet. Dennis and his team is traveling 2o,000 miles around the country capturing portraits from the cultures that are vanishing right before our eyes.
I only wish I would have thought about this idea first and it was me doing it. I wish Dennis well and fully support the project.
To follow along on the progress of the project visit the Facebook page for the latest information.
The Phone/Camera that Dennis was using in the video above is a new 41MP camera phone with Zeiss optics! Yes, I said a 41MP camera phone with Carl Zeiss optics. Apple, what are your plans for the iPhone 5? Europe always gets the good stuff first!
