The Great Picture: The Making of the World's Largest Photograph (Hardback)

Usually despatched in 7-10 days.


Six accomplished photographers- Jerry Burchfield, Mark Chamberlain, Jacques Garnier, Rob Johnson, Douglas McCulloh, and Clayton Spada- known as 'The Legacy Project', aided by 400 artists, experts, and volunteers, transformed an abandoned southern California F-18 jet hangar, located at the Marine Corps Air Station El Toro (MCAS El Toro) in Orange County, into the largest camera ever made and then proceeded to produce the world's largest photograph, 'The Great Picture'. The image is an enormous panoramic landscape of the California desert beyond the air station, which is destined to become the heart of the Orange County Great Park. On July 12, 2006, The Legacy Project unveiled the world's largest photograph at a special reception held inside the world's largest camera. It has been exhibited only twice since then during a short viewing at Art Center College of Design, South Campus Wind Tunnel, Pasadena, California in 2007, and most recently this past winter at Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, China.

However, for the first time, Sweeney Art Gallery/Culver Center s presentation of The Great Picture will be accompanied by additional components that explore details behind its making and those who made it possible. The Legacy Project have shown their work in more than 30 exhibitions in the United States and abroad. The Legacy Project will continue to work through 2017 as El Toro is transformed into the Orange County Great Park.
