The world’s largest pinhole camera & the photograph it created

May 16, 2016

Coming in at a whopping 111 feet high and 32 feet wide, this is the largest photograph made directly from a camera. The photograph titled ‘The Great Picture’ was created by six artists back in 2006 in a F-18 hangar in Irvine, California.

The photograph was created by light sealing the hangar and using light sensitive cloth, with the scene captured being a panoramic shot of the base. 

The photographs initial purpose was to celebrate the hangers location before it was transformed into a park. The camera obscura print currently holds the title in the guinness book of records as the world’s largest photographic print.
