Larger-than-Life Photo Project

I'm fascinated by this larger-than-life photography project that hubs found and shared with my cousin who is a professional artist. A photographer plans to build an enormous camera (see picture below the video) in a semi-truck trailer and drive around the country taking photos of vanishing cultures. Because the camera is so big, the photos it takes will be larger than life and more detailed than ever possible before. So interesting that an old-fashioned technology can be more powerful than digital. Watch the video and read the article here. You can also "chip in" to help out on kickstarter here.
