Hand built cameras – WZBOX.360
This camera is Walter & Zoniel’s largest camera to date. The WZBOX.360 is used solely for the creation of their ongoing “The Untouched” series, where the artists create full-length life-sized wet plate collodion portraits. Test incarnations of the camera have used enormous underground rooms as the camera housing. Somerset House’s DeadHouse, Gazelli Art House’s basements in Mayfair, and MC motors industrial underground spaces in Dalston. The WZBOX.360 was set to come out into the open air, above ground in 2018, a colossal 360 cubic metres. Housing their ginormous trays and dip tanks inside, and using a huge 1800mm lens.
