The Great Picture: Making the World's Largest Photograph
by Lucy R. Lippard
Publisher's Description
Six accomplished photographers—Jerry Burchfield, Mark Chamberlain, Jacques Garnier, Rob Johnson, Douglas McCulloh, and Clayton Spada—known as The Legacy Project, aided by 400 artists, experts, and volunteers, transformed an abandoned southern California F-18 jet hangar, located at the Marine Corps Air Station El Toro (MCAS El Toro) in Orange County, into the largest camera ever made and then proceeded to produce the world’s largest photograph, The Great Picture. The image is an enormous landscape panorama depicting the center of the base and the Laguna Beach hills beyond the air station, which is destined to become the heart of the Orange County Great Park.

On July 12, 2006, The Legacy Project unveiled the world's largest photograph at a special reception held inside the world's largest camera. It has been exhibited three times since then at Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, California, the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, China, and the University of California Riverside, Sweeney Art Gallery/Culver Center of the Arts.

The Legacy Project has shown their work in more than 30 exhibitions in the United States and abroad. The Legacy Project will continue to work through 2017 as El Toro is transformed into the Orange County Great Park.
