World's Largest Film Camera Meets Fotio!

With the help of Venue Logic, we had the opportunity of covering Dennis Manarchy's (Rockford, Illinois native!) reception for his 35ft. film camera/project called Butterflies and Buffalo. This camera is huge and beautiful and records images to 6ft negatives. We got to meet the many designers and artists involved in the project who were all extremely nice and informative. We used the shrubbery and evening sky as a photo booth backdrop outside 2 N. Riverside Plaza right along the river in downtown Chicago (where the camera has been displayed).
