Active Photography

I could not possibly like John Chiara’s photography more. Quick description:

Chiara operates a hand-built, room-sized camera that is mounted on a flatbed trailer. He works inside the camera, physically becoming a part of the process. During the long exposures, he dodges and burns by passing his hands in front of the camera’s lens.

To my eye, his photos are a reminder of how crazy it is that photography works at all.
