Camera IMAGO 1:1

The World’s largest walk-in camera:

Measuring 7x4x3 metres the camera Imago 1:1 is the largest walk in camera in the world and has been so ever since its invention in the 1970’s by the physicist Werner Krause and the artist Erhard Hößle.

As a result of the camera’s unique design it is able to take and print incomparable life-sized portraits on specially developed black and white paper. For their graphic quality, one to one reproduction and once off recording of a moment in time these pictures are a unique and lasting portrait.

The video embedded below shows the camera in action (German):

who would believe them winged
who would believe they could be

beautiful        who would believe
they could fall so in love with mortals

that they would attach themselves
as scars attach and ride the skin
