The Great Picture Heads South
The Great Picture, created to commemorate and promote the Orange County Great Park, required hundreds of volunteers and incalculable man hours to turn an F-18 jet maintenance hangar at the former El Toro Marine Corps Air Base into the largest camera obscura in history. In 2006, it created the largest photograph in the world, which depicts the defunct base’s control tower and tarmac and the future urban park.
As an example of turning swords into plowshares, the photo is heading to New Orleans’ Contemporary Arts Center photo exhibition. But the endeavor still requires financial support, says Mark Chamberlain, owner of Laguna Beach’s BC Space Gallery, who helped organize the shoot. Contributions will be rewarded with some wonderful perks and the opportunity to join in an extraordinary project with a very worthy cause, he said.
