The Great Picture

The Great Picture is the largest photograph ever made. It’s a unique gelatin silver photographic image more than 31 feet high by 107 feet wide [9.58 x 32.74 meters]. It’s a remarkable art object with photo history meaning and import that reaches far beyond mere size. The photograph was made using an abandoned fighter jet aircraft hangar in Southern California transformed into a gigantic camera obscura—the world’s largest camera. The Great Picture’s significance has been recognized worldwide in exhibitions, extensive press coverage, and a major book from fine art publishing house Hudson Hills Press, New York.
