“The Great Picture,” billed as the largest photograph ever made and a “final marker” of 170 years of film and chemical-based photography, is on exhibit now at New Orleans’ Contemporary Arts Center, and through December’s PhotoNOLA festival.
The photograph was made using the world’s largest camera–an abandoned hangar for fighter jets in Southern California that was transformed into a giant camera obscura.
