Free, Parking $15
Come and see what is possibly the largest pinhole photograph in the world, The Great Picture, on display at the Udvar-Hazy Center April 26 through November 2014. This exhibit features a unique camera obscura black-and-white, gelatin silver photograph that measures 31 feet high and 107 feet wide. It was created in 2006 by a group of six artists and depicts the abandoned Marine Corps Air Station El Toro in Southern California.
The artists, along with hundreds of volunteers, took this photograph by transforming the F/A-18 fighter jet hangar at the air station into a gigantic pinhole camera. This particular camera was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest pinhole camera in the world.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet one of the artists, Jacques Garnier, who will be signing copies of "The Great Picture: Making the World's Largest Photograph" on April 26. See our calendar for details.
