Perfection’s about the tiny little details. Which is why the artist Dennis Manarchy spent ten years making a gigantic film camera with a lens and film big enough to make eyelashes look like huge, translucent tubes (watch our film below and you’ll see what we mean).
He’s got his eye on you
Made at his studio in Chicago, Manarchy’s giant camera (dubbed ‘the Eye of America’) is a working prototype that produces two-metre-tall negatives and 12-metre-high portraits. It’s part of a touring project that will take the camera on a 32,000 kilometre road trip across the United States, capturing the faces of disappearing and emerging cultures.
