The Big Picture

(YouTube link)

Artist John Chiara thinks big. He built his own box camera, and made it as big as a room. Chiara takes it to a location on a trailer and puts it together on site. One benefit is that the camera never wiggles! He must also develop his own film, because the photographs are huge, too. -via the Presurfer

This man seems profoundly SAD to me. It was very interesting (being a photographer myself)...but his story and his reference to having a 'strange childhood' and everything about it- was sad. huh. strange.

That guy has got the right idea, a true photographer. His work is beautiful and it would take serious time to recreate with digital photography. Way to go.

Great stuff. I seem to get the feeling that perhaps his attitude to photography is so much more clearer because of his childhood and other experiences. Experience does make the person.
