A Lomographer's Dream Car


How many cameras does it take to cover a van? No, this is not a trick question involving calculating the surface area of a van and then dividing it by the shape and size of an average camera. After the jump, read about a man who did this and how many cameras he ended up using.

It all started as a dream for Harrod Blank, a dream all lomographers can identify with. In that dream, Blank envisioned a car covered in cameras that he could drive around and take pictures with. Two years later, the dream was a reality! So, how many cameras did it take? 2700 to be exact.

Pretty intense, or simply pretty, depending how you see it! Take a look at Blank's informative website for a full story. We found out about the story in this article from impactlab.
