Photo by myself in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
A one-of-a-kind van parked on a busy street drew crowds of onlookers, Saturday afternoon. The 'Camera Van' is a van literally covered with antique cameras, polaroids and video monitors.
There were even viewfinders on the back - those things from a million years ago that were like single-serving slide projectors. You slid disks into the viewfinders that had tiny transparent images on them, then clicked the lever to change the image.
According to the website, some of the cameras on the exterior work. The van has been shown in many festivals around the country, alongside other 'art vehicles' (cars or vans covered with stuff).
A documentary called Automorphosis shows the Camera Van and other art vehicles. The film is being screened at various film festivals this year.
