A Camera as Big as a Truck!

© Shaun Irving

Shawn Irving shoot photographs inside his camera: an old postal delivery truck converted to a fixed-focal-length camera with a singlet (two large lenses, one convex, one concave) lens. The shutter is a sheet of metal that slides between the two lenses to block out the light. The truck is called Peanut, perhaps the modern version of The Mammoth.

That's a brilliant camera. I once saw cameras made from washing machines at the tate gallery in London, but a big truck beats that in my books.

Great blog, very informative.

All the best.
