A colossal camera, made by Dennis Manarchy, traverses America and captures stunning portraits of its culture and people. Take a look at this exceptional photography project which would surely amaze and inspire all film photographers.
Vanishing Cultures is a project spearheaded by photographer Dennis Manarchy who travels around America to take photographs of amazing faces which reflect various cultures — including Appalachians, Cajuns, Cowboys, Eskimos, Interred Japanese, and Native Americans.
The amazing thing about Vanishing Cultures is that it makes use of a humongous camera, called the Eye of America, which measures 35 feet long and 6 feet wide (whoa!) and is stylized to look like an old-fashioned large-format camera! This camera, capable of producing timeless images in microscopic detail, is so huge, a person can work inside it!
Still not enough to get you bewildered? Watch this video to know more about the project’s concept!
