Camera Van comes to Spartanburg

Filed under: Photography — Tags: , , , , , — JW @ 3:25 pm

This just pulled up in front of my office at the Herald-Journal.  The Camera Van, created by Harrod Blank, has over 2,000 cameras, four working monitors and even has six functioning Canon EOS cameras wired via remote cables to a shutter button panel on the dashboard.

To the average passerby, this van is weird, but to a photographer and collector of antique cameras, this van is awesome.   Unfortunately, I had to get back to work or else I could have spent all afternoon talking to Harrod and exploring the features of the van.  However, I was able to hand him $20 for his book of Art Cars and snap a couple pics with my Blackberry.  Check out his website  He will be showing his documentary film about Art Cars at the Chapman Cultural Center on Wednesday.
