While local photographer Camera Karma/Heather Oelklaus’s pinhole camera truck is NOT the largest pinhole camera in the world, it is still huge and far more mobile, and definitely (can we say it?) amazeballs! Just look at this image made up of 84 8×10″ gelatin prints:

    Um, what the heck is a pinhole camera/truck? Could the artist please add some explanation of this process here – and explanations of the other “not the usual” processes on her website? What are we looking at in all these images – and how were the images made? tnx.
