Large 35-Foot Long Camera to Take Detailed Two-Stories Tall Pictures


The two times world's best photographer Dennis Manarchy looks forward to using his 35-foot long camera for a project entitled "Vanishing Cultures."

The project will include snapshots of time on the road across the 50 states of America.

It is worth mentioning that the camera, called "Eye of America" is so big it hardly fits into a truck. It was developed to take detailed pictures that will be 1,000 times sharper than the sharpest digital image.

The camera's negatives are huge as well, measuring 6ft x 4.5ft. They will be inspected with the help if windows outfitted with LED lights. The final pictures are expected to be 2 stories in height.

It would be interesting to note that Manarchy's ambitious project will provide photos crafted just like the old cameras, featuring brass, wood and leather.

Manarchy decided to make such a large camera so people could see and feel the real photography, starting with the light that hits a prism and becomes exposed, to the developing procedure.
