Photographer Turns Truck into Camera and Darkroom for Project

Personal projects are a great way to challenge yourself. And as personal projects go, photographer Kurt Moser’s is a beaut.

Using Kickstarter funds, Moser has transformed a Russian URAL military truck into a functioning camera and darkroom. The truck has ben outfitted with a rare 1780mm APO-NIKKOR lens in the back that will expose Ambrotype plates that are 5 feet high.

Moser is going to use the camera/truck/darkroom to capture images of the Dolomites, a mountain range in Italy. Moser also plans to photograph the 80 and 90-year-old farmers native to the region many of whom have never been photographed in their entire lives (at least according to Moser).

When the project is completed both the truck and resulting Ambrotypes will be on display in the Berlin Museum and at other installations around the world. You can follow Moser’s journey here.
