John Chiara is a San Francisco-based photographer that uses an uber-large format camera the size of a trailer that he constructed himself. The camera is so dang big that setting up the thing requires a car jack and lots of yanking. After setting up the film inside the camera, Chiara climbs out of the camera through a long black garbage-bag style tube. To develop the prints, he uses an 18-inch diameter sewage pipe that he pours chemicals into and rolls around on the ground.
Jolayne Attwood (jolayne on Flickr) was at the International Photography Fair in Bièvres earlier this year when she came across this gigantic Instamatic 133 camera. There’s no covert street photography or shooting from the hip with this baby.
Obviously, what we have here is a brilliant conversation piece.
At the Glastonbury Festival this past weekend, a giant panoramic photograph containing 70,000+ attendees was snapped during the halftime of an England World Cup match. Afterward, the photo was put online and opened up to tagging via Facebook Connect. Since then, over 2,500 faces in the photograph have been tagged, making it (unofficially) the most tagged photo in the world.
