World’s biggest camera takes world’s biggest picture

Via PDN Online:

Photographers in southern California have created the world’s largest photograph using an airplane hangar as a giant camera obscura.

The core group working on the photo included Burchfield, Mark Chamberlain, Rob Johnson, Jacques Garnier, Douglas McCulloh and Clayton Spada. Together, they are working on The Legacy Project, a years-long photographic effort to document the Marine Corps Air Station El Toro in southern California. The abandoned air station is the future site of a large municipal park called the Orange County Great Park.

The image is pretty murky, but apparently you can make out some of the features of the runway… They’ll get in Guinness for this one for sure.
