Tom Kondrat: The Next BIG Thing August 14 2014



Because we're on a bit of a Tom Kondrat bender this week, we're sharing this sneak peak at his latest project, sent from his home in Taipei:  Tom's fabricating one of the world's largest cameras to capture the aesthetic of traditional Chinese ink painting without the use of modern photo-editing technology. This thing is massive! The camera is made for use with special paper negatives called Calotypes (one of the first photographic processes invented by Henry Fox Talbot in 1841). He's assembled a team of experts—including a Swiss wood-working master!—to help him build it. We can’t wait for the day when we’ll be able to announce a new edition crafted with this amazing instrument. Until then... check out or most recent Kondrat release right here:
