The Great Picture gets rare public viewing

Great PictureIn an age of digital photography when some people talk nostalgically about film it is easy to forget that cameras used to have pinholes instead of lenses. Although only taken in 2006 the world’s largest photograph was created with the rather retro method of turning an abandoned aircraft hanger into a massive pinhole camera. The final print stands at a vast 111 x 32 feet in size meaning it is rarely on public display. However, if you find yourself in the US then head to the Smithsonian in Washington between now and December where you can catch a rare glimpse of the picture in all its glory.
