Great Picture, Great Park

great_picture

The Guinness Book’s record holder for World’s Largest Photograph was created at the site of the Orange County Great Park, a brownfield-to-park project in Orange County, California.  The Great Picture is a gelatin silver print measuring 10 x 30 meters, or roughly three stories high and eleven stories long.  Six artists were  involved in converting an abandoned F-18 jet fighter hanger into a pinhole camera (thus creating the World’s Largest Camera) to capture the 2006 image documenting the 4,700-acre site at the threshold of change.

Great Park is currently under construction following the completion of an award-winning master plan that emphasizes sustainable design, community involvement and habitat restoration.
