In a world where all things small are considered beautiful and cool, a photographer is doing something quite drastically different from the norm. Dennis Manarchy is in the process of creating a camera that is so huge, it captures 24-foot tall realistic photographs of incredible detail.


The camera itself is huge, at 35 feet long, 12 feet tall and 8 feet wide, it’s large enough to fit a small apartment into. It uses negatives that are 4.5×6 feet in size.
An actual window needs to be used as a lightbox to view them. As opposed to dipping the negatives in chemicals, they need to be showered with the stuff in order to be developed.
